Louden Nelson Center - 301 Center Street

Community Meeting to Strategize and Mobilize

Initiated by Beyond Bernie folks, the evening's intent is to gather together all the progressive people and groups we could identify in Santa Cruz, to join in a discussion of what we should and can do in our new political reality.  We want to identify our priorities and figure out how we can best stand with our vulnerable communities and work together to protect social, racial, environmental and economic justice for all.

Send this to your friends and

......put it on your calendar now!

 

The PDC has formed a committee for solidarity and sanctuary.  We recognize that it's EVERYONE's job to stand up for immigrants and refugees, for women, for the GLBT community, and for Muslims, Native Peoples and African-Americans targeted by Trump's stop-and-frisk agenda. 

There is much work to do RIGHT NOW in our unions, faith communities, local government and community organizations.  We invite club members and allies to let us know how we can support YOUR solidarity and sanctuary efforts.  Contact us to get involved at pdc.solidarity.sanctuary@gmail.com.

Key Messages

Immigrants are part of California's heart and soul and have deep roots in our neighborhoods and communities. Trump's threat to deport 3 million people is a witch hunt targeting some of the most vulnerable Californians. Our deepest values are at stake.
