DSA: Knock Doors for Housing Justice & Yes on Prop 10 @ Mclymonds Mini Park
Sep 23 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
The housing crisis in the Bay Area and beyond is a wholly preventable disaster, created and maintained by the notion that housing is a commodity and not a human right. On Saturday, September 23, join us in the campaign for the Yes on Prop 10, also called the Affordable Housing Act — a ballot initiative that that will give our cities and counties the power to adopt rent control necessary to address the state’s housing affordability crisis by repealing the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act. The Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act upholds … Continued

Cancel the ICE Contract: Dreamforce @ Moscone Center | San Francisco | California | United States
  Last week, one of the largest consulting and management firms in the world cut ties with ICE. McKinsey and Company showed just how easy it is to stay true to its values. McKinsey’s contract did not deal directly with immigration enforcement but the company still took a stance stating they, “will not, under any circumstances, engage in any work, anywhere in the world, that advances or assists policies that are at odds with our values.” McKinsey’s move to cancel their ICE contract comes amid growing outcry over company’s contracts with ICE, … Continued

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. THE ITEM WILL NOT BE TAKEN UP BY THE COUNCIL THIS DAY.

What BART does affects all of its riders, so your voice should be heard – even if they make you travel a long way to do it. Pittsburg City Hall, to be exact. Free shuttle from … Continued

Thanks to the power of the #MeToo movement and the courage of Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and now Julie Swetnick, the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, appearing only days ago to be a virtual lock, is now hanging by a thread. Kavanaugh, having amassed a thoroughly reactionary anti-woman, anti-worker, and pro-corporation record as a judge on the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, was already the most unpopular Supreme Court nominee since Robert Bork in 1987. Come on out on Saturday to build a movement to #CancelKavanaugh and halt these … Continued
