 Announcements

(Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday a.m.)

Tuesday, February 14

Tuesday, 10:30am. February 14: “Let’s Make A Date” Valentines Day Rally

SF Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi’s Office
90 – 7th Street,  Suite 2-800
SF

Many members of Congress haven’t yet scheduled town hall meetings with constituents for the February congressional recess Feb. 18 – 26.

In the last week we’ve seen Trump give handouts to Wall Street at the expense of consumers and rush forward the Dakota Access Pipeline, and push through more dangerous Cabinet picks. We deserve the chance to meet publicly with our representatives to discuss these vital issues for our democracy.

That’s why, this Valentine’s Day, February 14, we’ll visit our senators and representatives’ local offices with a clear demand: “Let’s Make a Date! Host a Town Hall!”

Host: Move-On

Tuesday, 11:30am – 12:30pm, Demand Disney Stand With Immigrants – Not Trump

39 Stockton St. (between Ellis & O’Farrell)
SF

In late January, President Trump signed a “Muslim ban” executive order barring immigrants and refugees from seven primarily Muslim countries from entering the United States.

People from across the country are protesting and demanding businesses that are collaborating with Donald Trump step down from his economic advisory council.

Last week, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick stepped down from the economic advisory council, and this week, we’re asking Disney CEO Bob Iger to do the same.

Tuesday, 2:00pm, Proposal for sheriff’s $70 Million jail renovation funding will be voted on by BoS.

SF City Hall, Room 250
1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Place
SF

Despite community opposition, at the budget and finance committee meeting, the Sheriff’s $70 million state application for the jail renovation project was moved forward to the full Board of Supervisors.

Proposal includes an increase of 8 beds and the cell structure will be modified from open pods to locked cells. Additionally, the Sheriff proposes to move prisoners either to one of the jails that SF has already committed to closing or to other counties like Alameda County while the renovation takes place.

CALL the Supervisors

Let them Know that you are a SF resident and oppose jail construction in San Francisco.

Ask them to amend the resolution to apply for jail renovation funding to prohibit bed increases and ensure that the resolution is voted on again before expending the money, and that San Francisco stand against security increases that further harden isolation and restriction of movement inside the jail.

Wednesday, February 15

Wednesday, 4:00pm – 6:00pm, Tell Trump and Netanyahu No Building on Stolen Land

SF Federal Building
7th Street & Mission
SF

NOTE: In lieu of  The Codepink, World Can’t Wait & Occupy Action Council PEACE VIGIL we will be participating in this action.

In the midst of beautiful, building resistance disrupting agendas of racism, bigotry, and Islamophobia, the White House announced that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be coming to DC to meet with Trump on February 15.

We  expect that this meeting will result in an even more open US support for Israeli policies that deny Palestinian rights and land, including the building of illegal settlements, and a further cementing of the “shared values” of racism and hate.

Trump says the wall he wants to build on the US-Mexico border is modeled on the walls Israel has built. Netanyahu himself made this point in recent tweets and Israeli companies are even bidding to construct it.

Thursday, 9:30am – 1:00pm, Action Alert: Stand Up for SF Immigrants

SF City Hall
1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Pl
SF

9:30am Rally at City Hall
10:30 am Board of Supervisors Budget Committee, Rm. 250

Rally and Press Conference, followed by the Budget and Finance Committee Meeting of the Board of Supervisors, where Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer will introduce legislation to provide attorneys to defend San Franciscans locked in immigration detention centers. Show up provide support and speak at public comment!

  • 70% of SF’s immigrant detainees are unrepresented by lawyers. More than half lived in San Francisco for more than a decade, many with citizen children
    • No other area of U.S. law allows us to lock people up and make them fight against trained government lawyers without assistance of an attorney.
    • Detained immigrants with attorneys are 7x more likely to win than those defending themselves

Thursday, 9:30am – 1:00pm, Shield San Francisco

SF City Hall
1 Dr. Carleton B. Goodlett Pl
SF

9:30am Rally at City Hall
10:30 am Board of Supervisors Budget Committee, Rm. 250

Many people are at severe risk under this new President. Supervisor Fewer has found unspent salary savings that could be used to protect those at risk, providing housing subsidies to people with disabilities, LGBTQ folks, and undocumented families, allowing them to stay in San Francisco.

This would cut money out of budget and fund a subsidy that would serve 155 homeless or at-risk households!

+ 30 undocumented families or families with children with disabilities
+ 125 LGBT and non-LGBT seniors and people with disabilities, at a cost of $1.5 million and $1 million respectively.

This funding would also include $400,000 for the public defenders office to defend against deportations of undocumented people.

Restore funding for new subsidies that Mayor Lee cut!
