The event was apart of a series of events worldwide celebrating World Water day and attempting to bring awareness to water issues, as well as other humanitarian issues. This specific event, Bless the Lake, also had the intention to build community in Oakland, a city that has and continues to experience some fractures in community due to rapid gentrification and other social factors. This community event included Bay Area nonprofits, mass meditation, food, music and dance.
