Welcome back to the Square Pizza Podcast. This week, Greg is in conversation with Taylor Toynes, the Founder and Executive Director of For Oak Cliff. For Oak Cliff is an organization out of Dallas, TX serving the Oak Cliff neighborhood. What started as back to school festival distributing school supplies has turned into an independent organization focused on liberating Oak Cliff from systemic oppression through education, community building, and advocacy.
Today, Taylor shares about:
– How J. Cole ended up at their festival
– Navigating the pandemic, as an organization and personally with his family
– How For Oak Cliff came to be and where they hope to go
