455 Golden Gate Ave,
San Francisco, CA 94102

A 24, Wednesday, 5:30pm – 7:00pm, Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline Solidarity Action: SF Bay (Rally)

SF Federal Building
7th & Mission Street
SF

Construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline has been put on hold until a Washington D.C. court date on Wednesday, August 24th. Which was brought on by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

The tribe is suing federal regulators who approved the permits that allow the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would move oil from North Dakota to Illinois, potentially polluting the water supply on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

The tribe has launched an international campaign, called “Rezpect our Water”, asking the Army Corps to deny the key permits for the pipeline.

A 25, Thursday, 6:30pm – 9:00pm, OPP Workshop: Know Your Options in Chronic Health

955 – 7th Street

“POLICING IS A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE”

Because policing fails to meet people’s needs, and puts people in danger of arrest, imprisonment, and/or even death, we must eliminate connections between policing and healthcare.

Workshop is designed to increase people’s understanding of how policing, incarceration and gentrification drive health inequalities manifest as chronic illnesses and to empower folks who live with them to access the care they need with minimal contact with law enforcement.

August 26th marks 18 months since the SFPD officers Craig Tiffe and Eric Reboli murdered Amilcar Perez Lopez by firing six shots to his back. Eighteen months and still the DA has not charged the officers with murder.

At the site where the police murdered him, we’ll remember Amilcar in story, song, poetry, dance, and prayer.

A 26, Friday, 7:30pm – A 27 Saturday, 9pm, Town Hall: Police Militarization Training in Pleasanton

4477 Black Ave.
Pleasanton, CA

Come out to learn more about “Urban Shield,” a police militarization training and venue for selling military-grade weaponry that will be held in Pleasanton on Sept. 9th. Urban Shield promotes the use of deadly force as a first level of response and is subsidized by federal money.

The town hall will be an opportunity for residents of Pleasanton and surrounding areas to understand what exactly Urban Shield is, the harmful impacts it has on our communities, and our efforts to call for the defunding of this harmful program. We will also explore more effective models of emergency response training and systems that are not based on a warfare-style mentality and approach.

URBAN SHIELD WebinarThis is the video/recording of a webinar on Urban Shield – it is about 45min long. But will help you understand the local, national and international implications of Urban Shield :https://vimeo.com/178061553
