Do you want to partner with us, but you aren’t ready to host an Ally? No worries! We have a number of other partnership opportunities available, including:

  • Host Public Allies for workshop space on a Friday.
  • Facilitate a professional development workshop for Allies.
  • Support one of our Team Service Projects.
  • Participate in a Service Day with Public Allies.
  • Be a sponsor for our Meet the Allies event.

If you are interested in any of these partnership opportunities,

East Palo Alto Today (EPA Today) partnered with Public Allies San Francisco / Silicon Valley in 2019 to support a Team Service Project (TSP). The TSP team, comprised of 6 Allies, were tasked with creating articles that raising up the voices of East Palo Alto residents’ concerns on issues like gentrification, displacement, homelessness, and food stability are not well known outside of EPA. To achieve this, they wrote 11 articles in EPA Today, created the 1st annual EPA Today Media Day, and formed connections between 27 nonprofits based in East Palo Alto.


Thank you to all of our current and former partners!
