Tenant and Neighborhood Councils -Monthly General Meeting @ Omni Commons
Aug 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Strike Debt Bay Area: Debt Resistance is NOT Futile! @ Omni Commons
Aug 12 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Strike Debt is building a debt resistance movement. We believe that most individual debt is illegitimate and unjust.

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! Presenting debt and inequality related topics at forums, workshops and in radio productions. Promoting single-payer / Medicare … Continued
