Tell Gov. Brown to put chlorpyrifos on hold
The science is clear. Chlorpyrifos can harm children’s health and development, even at the low levels found as residue in food. It also puts farmworkers and rural communities at risk. Click box below.

Monday, 9:00am – 11:00am, Celebrate Fernando’s Freedom!
630 Sansome St.
**Celebrate Fernando’s Freedom this Monday morning!!**
Judge Park ordered Fernando’s release this week, and after no appeal, Fernando will reunite with his family at 630 Sansome Street, SF this Monday 4/2 morning.
Fernando has been unjustly detained since Oct 2017. Lourdes’ leadership over 5 months, along with the advocacy and solidarity of her family and larger community, has led to Fernando’s freedom. We are so honored to celebrate this victory with the Carrillo family!
Details of the exact time of Fernando’s arrival this Monday morning have not been confirmed, but we expect it to be sometime between 9 AM – 11 AM at 630 Sansome St. We will give an exact time as soon as we hear. Follow this facebook event for updates.
Lourdes invites you all to bring signs to welcome Fernando home. For those of you who cannot make it we will share a facebook live video from this event page.

Monday, 3:30pm, Demand DA O’Malley Charge Mateu with Murder of Sahleem Tindle
1225 Fallon St.
We’ve all seen the video! How is it that BART police officer Joseph Mateu has not already been charged with the murder of Sahleem Tindle, after he shot the 28 year old in the back three times? Join us to demand that Nancy O’Malley do her job and charge and prosecute Mateu for murder. O’Malley has yet to prosecute a single killer cop. It’s time to break that unjust record!

The same colonizing ideologies used to force indigenous folks from their land, institutionalize slavery and impede many POCs from accessing economic stability are still in effect today as speculators capitalize on racialized displacement and commodification of our homes in these so-called ‘sanctuary cities’. Bay Area politicians are catering to tech wealth and luxury development, while our most vulnerable residents are being evicted from their homes and communities – their first line of support and defense. Many of these elected representatives voted for sanctuary city status, some even stating they’d get arrested to stop deportations, yet their policies help facilitate the hemorrhaging of low-income black and brown populations.
This event uses such hypocrisies as a jumping off point to guide us through imagining real sanctuary, a right to the city and demands for reparations not resegregation.

Mayan War Room in Honor of Luís Góngora Pat

Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts

A Fundraiser and Art & Revolution exhibit of his family’s struggle for justice, including original embroidered protest artwork by Luis’s widow and daughter from Yucatan. The Mayan War Room will operate as a pop-up office space of www.justice4luis.orgduring the month of April.
Saturday, April 7th marks the 2nd year anniversary of the killing of Luis Góngora Pat by two officers of the San Francisco Police Department. Luis was a Mayan man from Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, and a migrant worker in San Francisco for fourteen years. Since his homicide, his family has been on a journey to make Luis’s killers and their abettors accountable. To honor his life and family’s struggle, a pop-up Mayan War Room has been set up for this year’s anniversary.
The Mayan War Room will keep office hours during the month of April to showcase the wide array of strategies, tactics and actions carried out by the family to demand justice in the past two years. Here we will hold a fundraiser for Luis’s family in Teabo on the 7th, and launch a new campaign, in coalition with other supporters and groups, to pressure D.A. Gascón to “Charge Killer Cops or Resign!”
The war room will also display hand-sewn images of Luis by Doña Carmen May Can and Rossana Góngora May, widow and daughter, respectively, and other female relatives of the deceased. The hand embroidered images are intended to speak to the protest posters made by San Francisco artists that also bear Luis’s image. The women of Teabo join the protest from afar with their own artwork rooted in their own artistry and “hilo contado” style for which . . .
