Strike Debt Bay Area Meeting: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ La Coquelet, backroom
Jun 4 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust. Most of us fall into debt because we are increasingly deprived of the means to acquire the basic necessities of life: health care, education, and housing. Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it.

Jun 10 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
In December, The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to reject state funding for the construction of a new jail in San Francisco.

Currently, the city is convening various community stakeholders, with SF Department of Public Health and the Sheriff’s Office, to re-envision replacing the current jail. This city work group is now meeting monthly to decide what kinds of alternatives to incarceration can be built in SF, such as more funding … Continued

Jun 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
By ANDREA PRICHETT So it has been more than three years since Kayla was killed by Berkeley police. And yes, I believe that she was killed by the police. Perhaps unintentionally, but with an arrogance that should be considered criminal nonetheless: they killed her. Six cops participated in the killing of Kayla Moore. This transgender, African American woman who weighed almost 350 pounds, found herself underneath about 1,200 pounds of agitated police. By the time they got off of her enough to realize that she wasn’t breathing, it had also … Continued
