SAVE THE DATE
Save the date for Memorial Day weekend from May 24-27. At long last, Copa Comunidad is coming to the soil it grew from: Oakland, CA!
WHAT IS COPA COMUNIDAD?
Copa Comunidad brings Left Wing squads from across the country together for a weekend of fútbol, fun and community. This is a space for people of all genders, skill levels, and abilities (especially those not traditionally represented on the soccer pitch) to come play and celebrate together. All are welcome regardless of your ability to play, pay or whether you’ve participated in Left Wing in the past. As always, we make sure everyone gets a touch on the ball, builds each other’s skills, and the score is always 2–2.
All events will be held in or near Oakland, California. Need a place to stay? Fill out our registration page to make sure we have housing for you. The schedule will be up closer to the event, but there will be activities from Friday evening to Monday morning revolving around food, soccer, politics and fun. Registration fee is sliding scale $50-65. And sign up to get your Copa Comunidad 2019 t-shirts are only $15!
READY TO STRIKE!
The year, we celebrate Oakland’s revolutionary roots and present day struggles. From the General Strike and the Black Panthers to recent movement moments like Occupy, Black Lives Matter and resisting 45, Oakland working class families stay READY TO STRIKE and score to win victories for women, workers, queer/trans/gnc people, black people, indigenous people, migrants, youth, and people with disabilities.
