Sunday, 12 Noon – 2:00pm, Practicing Solidarity During Immigration Raids in SF: Rapid Response Network Training
Ignatian Spiritual Life Center
1611 Oak St.
Become part of a team of committed people ready to respond and be present during any ICE raids of homes and workplaces. This training will provide information on how to:
+ Be a part of the team of “first responders” at the site of an ICE raid and connect the families affected with the resources for social and legal services available to them in San Francisco
+Document any abuses during raids, and help build visibility by giving a real face to the mass deportations. You will gather information to tell the real story about WHO is being affected!
+OR if you don’t want to be a “first responder”, you can join the Accompaniment Team and play a supporting role in assisting families who are affected by raids—they may need rides to appointments, food, help connecting to services, etc.
Organized by: Faith in Action Bay Area, Pangea Legal Services, the Archdiocese of San Francisco & the Ignatian Spiritual Life Center

Black and Brown Social Club
474 Valencia St. (btw. 15th & 16th Sts.)
After the film – Skype discussion with director Donald Goldmacher.
“Heist traces the worldwide economic collapse to a 1971 secret memo entitled“Attack on American Free Enterprise System.” Written over 40 years ago by the future Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell at the behest of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the 6-page memo, a free-market utopian treatise, called for a money-fueled big business makeover of government through corporate control of the media, academia, the pulpit, arts and sciences and destruction of organized labor and consumer protection groups.
But Powell’s real “end game” was business control of law and politics. Heist’s step by step detail exposes the systemic implementation of Powell’s memo by bothU.S. political parties culminating in the deregulation of industry, outsourcing of jobs, and regressive taxation – all of which led us to the global financial crisis of 2008, the continued dismantling of the American middle class, and the “election” of Donald Trump.
