Pastor Jerome McCorry, Dayton, Ohio Adam Project director and Faith coordinator of Stop Mass Incarceration Network
Moderator: Rochelle Fortier Nwadibia

Thousands of people have risen in the last year to demand that the police stop their wanton and repeated killings of Black and Latino people. But the police, backed up from on high, have continued this onslaught and lashed back harder. This is a plague.

Rise Up October has called for militant and mass mobilization on October 22 to 24, focused in New York City, to STOP this.

S 27, Sunday, 5:30pm, Video by: Tim Wise “White Like Me”

Omni Commons – basement

Does White Supremacy still exist in the USA? Or as we are told in school, on TV, and in the press, etc. “We live in a PostRacial
Society now.” What do the majority of white people think? Is it racist to even bring up the subject of racism?

Tim Wise’s facts and figures on this issue are very helpful in our continuing struggle to build working class unity. Join in discussion afterward.

Flood Wall Street West—Mass March & Action to Shut Down Climate Profiteers

Chelsea Manning Plaza (Justin Herman Plaza)
1 Market St.

Flood the institutions that are profiting from the climate crisis.
**WEAR BLUE**

People across the continent are preparing and organizing for #FloodTheSystem, a continental uprising against the economic and political systems threatening our survival.

To kick off #FloodTheSystem, we’re going to Flood Wall Street West: San Francisco’s financial district. Flood Wall Street West will consist of a tour of shame of some of the worst corporate and political bad actors in San Francisco’s financial district. We will take mass direct action to shut down business as usual and emphasize the connections between the climate crisis, capitalism, exploitation and oppression.

This is direct action for everybody. While many will risk arrest, everyone can participate safely, whether or not you’re willing to go to jail. A legal briefing and nonviolent direct action training will be held before the march to make sure that everyone is prepared to participate.
