Northern California, CA (Merxwire) – The Black Cultural Zone is a three-year organization that enhances cultural awareness by promoting projects promoted by the East Oakland community in California. The community plans a variety of activities, including art, music, food/mask distribution, and community reach-ins for Black August. Get in touch with Footprint through People Power Solar Cooperative to find related equipment to supply Black Cultural Zone power.
Which type of equipment is suitable for powering the Black Cultural Zone? During the event, the Footprint Project used T5 mobile solar trailer to provide two speakers with continuous power supply for several hours. The T5 trailer used to be used in emergency and non-emergency events for phone charging stations, lighting, refrigeration, and sound equipment, and will continue to be used in the future.
Footprint project aims to communicate with other local community groups affiliated with the Black Cultural Zone about how this T5 trailer could energize other events in the area as well as help to organize long-term sustainability planning for various communities.
Footprint Project will continue to support these organizations in the time of long overdue social justice. With increased support and participation from local volunteers and its national network, the Footprint Project team will work to provide power to organizations and communities that raise social awareness and preserve the culture of black communities.
