About the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights

The Ella Baker Center For Human Rights, headquartered in Oakland’s Fruitvale district, was named after Ella Baker — a brilliant, black hero of the civil rights movement. Following in her footsteps, The Ella Baker Center organizes with Black, Brown, and low-income people to shift resources away from prisons and punishment, and towards opportunities that make our communities safe, healthy, and strong. They believe that what you water grows. That’s why they mobilize everyday people to build power and prosperity in our communities.
