LOVELIFE FOUNDATION
WHEREAS, Oakland is a beautiful and diverse city that is known worldwide for its long and rich tradition of social activism and advocacy and takes great pride in its diversity and it's long-standing commitment to holistic social policy and creating an environment of inclusion and equity; and

WHEREAS, Oakland's residents and leaders are firmly committed to adopting a comprehensive and holistic approach to addressing the conditions that lead to violence and toward creating a climate of restoration for the individuals and communities impacted by violence; and

WHEREAS, the senseless loss of life to gun violence impacts tens of thousands of Oakland's youth and adults who witness violence or live in tyranny every day, and despite modest drops in violent crimes this year, the abysmally low clearance rate for homicide and the proliferation of illegal firearms continues to plague our city and continues to make the community feel that Oakland's leaders have turned a blind eye to the real human cost to the spirit of the people who live with this daily threat; and

WHEREAS, the Lovelife Foundation was founded to honor the work and vision of LoEshe' Lacy, a 16 year-old West Oakland student activist who was an innocent victim of a shooting on October 20, 1997 in Oakland; and

WHEREAS, the name LoEshe' is Ibo/Nigerian and means "Love life" in English, and

WHEREAS, the Lovelife Foundation together with dozens of other organizations and hundreds of residents and activists in Oakland send the message of love and healing to the individuals and communities impacted by violence and have advocated for the City to adopt a citywide message that honors the lives of the thousands of members of our community who have been killed by senseless violence especially our youth and articulates our aspirations for the future; and
