                As ODALC celebrated a year of hard-earned accomplishment and looked ahead to 2011, so did Oakland’s recent Mayor-Elect Jean Quan. Within thirty minutes of announcing her victory at Oakland City Hall, Quan made her way to Preservation Park in support of ODALC and Inspiration Awards 2010. “I'm particularly honored to be here because (ODALC) has had this vision of inspiring Oakland and looking at Oakland in new way… (ODALC) is part of the new Oakland, the next generation. Let’s support them!” says Mayor-Elect Jean Quan. When she takes office on January 3rd, 2011, Quan will be the first Asian American woman mayor of a major U.S. city. ODALC considers her an invaluable ally in the effort to promote greater prosperity for Oakland and the Bay Area. After a year of struggle and hardship, Oakland hopefully awaits a new era of leadership and social change. Inspiration Awards 2010 exceeded its original scope and served as a platform for that change. For 2011, ODALC plans to recruit more board members and raise $80,000 to support its program “Digital Equity for Local Commerce,” which helps struggling small business owners in Oakland compete with the rest of the market via online advertising. If Wednesday night was any indication, the Oakland community has the passion and the drive to make ODALC’s vision a reality. ODALC’s vision is a better-informed, self reliant community that will harness digital media and technology for economic success and professional vitality. With their facility located on the edge of Chinatown, they hope to transform downtown Oakland into an area that flourishes through digital literacy, innovative and cultural collaboration. © 2010 - Oakland Digital Arts & Literacy Center | @odalc | @inspireoakland | www.odalc.org
