In April 2016, the City of Oakland adopted an official city motto in memory of 16-year old Lo'Eshe Lacy. The motto serves as a mantra against violence and an affirmation of the value of life. Lo'Eshe in Nigerian Igbo means "love life," a rallying cry to embody Oakland love.
City messages that evoke the spirit of our beloved community will bear #Oaklandlovelife.
