Get Involved

West Oakland Stories Positive Feeling Movement (WOSPFM) is an educational and empowerment organization where we, the elders of West Oakland, motivate our communities to participate in the No Negative Speak movement by sharing stories that connect Oakland’s living history with the principles of the No Negative Speak movement.

The goal of the movement is to help everyone identify the various tools and engagement opportunities at their disposal where they can put the No Negative Speak principles into practice by choosing to interact with ourselves and others with love and appreciation. Through the oral tradition of storytelling, WOSPFM encourages everyone to stop and listen as our elders speak on their first-hand experiences so that future generations can learn, appreciate, and contextualize the world around them. Learning from our elders not only strengthens our connection with the past, it serves as an opportunity for our communities to practice No Negative Speak and create a brighter future together.

Volunteering can be a life-changing experience and provides an opportunity to build new skills, give back to the community and feel connected. If you or someone you know is looking for an opportunity to get involved and be a part of a movement for positive change, check out the volunteer opportunities for a newly formed non-profit called West Oakland Stories Positive Feeling Movement (WOSPFM).

Join a brand new nonprofit focused spreading positive thinking and behavior around the world, using the No Negative Speak movement as a call to action that sparks positive change within ourselves and our communities.
