Weekly calendar for people who are politically active (from Patricia Gray)

There are many activities leading up to the inauguration.  Read down the list and find one that you can attend. If you can attend an event, take the time to talk to someone you don’t know.  We need to build a community to stand up to the hard right turn of our government.

    Thanks for the calendar of events – very helpful!

    Just FYI – Pretty sure that the SF United Against Trump meeting that you have listed for Jan 10th is actually happening on Sat Jan 7th at the Women’s Building. Also, the FB link you have doesn’t work.

    Here is a link to the event:

    Dear Patricia Gray,

    I hope you’ll consider adding an event to the evening of this Saturday. Currently collaborating with RefuseFascism.org, and I’d love to include OccupySF as well.

    After Donald’s nuclear tweets I decided to hold Twitter accountable. The headquarters are in our own backyard, and we need to show them the danger the put us all in by not banning Donald. They must honor the terms of service and ban Donald, or will will point their unethical behavior to their advertisers:
