The Oakland Warehouse/Ghost Ship Fire
In December 2016, a fire broke out in an Oakland, California warehouse known as the “Ghost Ship.” A concert was taking place in the warehouse which had been converted into an artist collective. Thirty-six people died in the fire, making it the deadliest fire in Oakland’s history and criminal charges were filed against the building landlord and a tenant. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office will discuss their experience in responding to this mass casualty event and the coordination between victim services, law enforcement, city and county officials and service providers.

Dinner and Special Presentation of SEVEN (Matthew Knight Arena)

In 2006, seven women playwrights began the process of interviewing international women leaders connected to the network of Vital Voices Global Partnership. The result was a truly compelling piece of documentary theatre. SEVEN tells the true stories of seven courageous women who faced tremendous challenges in their lives, including rape, poverty and human trafficking, and bravely fought for the well-being of women, families, and children around the globe: in Russia, protecting women from domestic violence; in Cambodia, rescuing girls from human trafficking; in Guatemala, giving voice to the poor; in Afghanistan, empowering rural women; in Nigeria and Pakistan, fighting for women’s education and rights; and in Northern Ireland, promoting peace and equality. SEVEN premiered in New York City on Martin Luther King Day in 2008.

To date, it has been translated into more than 20 languages and performed in 32 different countries. SEVEN is a very different theatrical production that will inspire audience members to take action in their local communities. Directed by Anita Ahuja, Manager for Special Projects at the CA Victim Compensation Program and Director for the Winters Theatre Company, a non-profit community theatre organization in Winters, California. SEVEN is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

“Riveting, explosive, and inspiring drama…starkly emotive…reaffirm[s] the belief that one person could indeed make a difference.”— Huffington Post

“Poignant and compelling…it offers assurance that even the most disadvantaged individuals can speak out and do something.” — Salt Lake City Tribune

“The lives of these women provide a portal through which audiences will be able to experience a diversity of cultures while bearing witness to the varied way in which individual women have overcome seemingly insurmountable hurdles to justice and freedom.” —Melanne Verveer, Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues
