Omni Commons and Sudo Room Oakland

I went to visit Sudo Room the other day, which has recently moved to a new collectively run community center called Omni Commons. There is a cute little cafe, a library, and some other facilities. The building is an old event space which has a dance hall, stage, cafe, a disco dance room, and much more.

It was very inspiring to see and I hope to make it down to Oakland a bit more and participate in the future!
