In 2021, The Zachary Project supported our people to secure safe housing after release from prison and temporary housing after fires and other emergencies; to purchase food and basic needs during unanticipated health deterioration; to access medication, skilled support, intensive mental health care resources, and more.



The Zachary Project is a community fund of Critical Resistance Oakland to support community members in need that honors beloved former chapter member Zachary Ontiveros who passed away in 2015.


Check out updates from the project in our 2021-2022 newsletter here, including reflections on Zachary’s legacy, how project funds were used to support Bay Area community members this past year, and testimonies from recipients.
