Strike Debt Bay Area: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ Mudraker's Cafe
May 6 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Because we are forced to go into debt simply in order to live, we think it is right and moral to resist it. Come get connected with SDBA’s projects! Tiny Homes for the homeless. Promoting single-payer / Medicare for All to end the plague of medical … Continued
