Weekly Communication May 16, 2019


Welcome to the second installment of our ULF communication. This week, we’re excited to help you get to know each other through short bios and let you know about a kick-off phone call we’re hosting to answer your many questions. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have questions.

Content: Collaboration Pre-Reading

In the weeks leading up to the fellowship, we’ll be sharing a few different resources and readings. More to come in the next few weeks!

Culture: Meet your team!

Take a few minutes to check out the bios of our fellows and staff (password is oakland) so you get to know our team.

Also, feel free to check out the ULF National Facebook page that connects you to all of the fellows from around the nation (request to join & they’ll approve you!). As a reminder, if you haven't already, please accept the invite to join the Oakland 2019 ULF listserv.

Logistics: Kick-Off Phone Call

Based on the emails coming in, we know you have a lot of questions! For that reason, we will be hosting a kick off phone call on Thursday, May 23rd, at 6:30pm PST to answer your questions and proactively share information on what to expect with partner organizations, policy projects and more. Even if you don’t have any questions yourself, you may find it helpful to listen to the questions of others. We’ll send a calendar invite, but we’ll use the following call-in number: 712-775-7031 Access Code: 845048#.

Action Items:

Housing and Follow-up

Many of you have begun the search for housing, but for those who haven’t, this is a gentle reminder that – while we’re here to help – it’s up to you to secure housing for the summer. Please utilize this housing exchange as well as craigslist, Airbnb & other connections. Let us know if you have any questions about this.

Also, if you haven’t already, please place your bio, headshot & updated resume in this shared folder and complete your partner org skills survey by Friday, May 17th.
