We cannot directly plan your carpooling, but we have created a platform for you to self-organize with other attenders of the summit. We are not responsible for or monitoring the carpools, and ask that you leave your number so that your fellow carpool mates can reach you in the event of an emergency or a change of plans. You may sign up for each individual event, or work out with the other people in your car directly.

Bathrooms & Quiet Rooms

The Oakland Asian Cultural Center has three sets of gendered bathrooms (two multi-use and one single-use). We invite our guests to use whichever bathroom they feel is most comfortable. A fourth set and its attached dressing space will be closed off and deemed a quiet room for those who will need to take a moment to themselves out of the stimulation of the summit or who just need a few minutes of quiet.
