for general operating support  
Founded in 1988, The Working Group/Not In Our Town is an Oakland-based nonprofit strategic media and community engagement company that combines film and online resources with outreach and organizing efforts in the areas of workplace issues, race, diversity, and the battle against intolerance, encouraging democracy and citizen participation. Not In Our Town, the core program of The Working Group, works to guide, support, and inspire individuals and communities to work together to stop hate and build safe, inclusive environments for all. Storytelling that foregrounds solutions and encourages local action is central to Not In Our Town’s strategy. Practical action guidelines, coaching, convening, and engagement tools for communities, schools, and law enforcement are combined with documentary PBS films and online media that support local efforts to prevent hate, bullying, and intolerance, and encourage all residents to participate in public life.
