3. Thursday, 12Noon – 1:00pm, Climate Justice in San Francisco: Racism, Radioactive & Toxic Waste, and Rising Oceans
At the recent Global Training in July 2020, former Vice President Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project continued their call to prioritize and center the
environmental justice work of communities of color and indigenous communities.
In this spirit, we invite you to learn about and engage with Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice’s “We Can’t Breathe” campaign in San Francisco’s Bayview and
Hunters Point (BVHP) neighborhoods, a low-income community of color (33.7 percent
African American, 30.7 percent Asian, and 24.9 percent Latinx per the 2010 Census)
where residents suffer from high rates of asthma and cancer and where radioactive waste
and toxic contamination at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Superfund site and multiple other contaminated sites are located.
As one of the lowest-lying points in San Francisco, BVHP will also be first impacted by rising oceans, which have already risen by almost 8 inches as of 2016 and which threaten to create flooding of hazardous and radioactive waste of neighborhoods, transportation infrastructure, and the entire San Francisco Bay, while several hundred new luxury homes have been built next to and possibly on top of radioactive contamination, and 10,000 more homes are planned at the contaminated Shipyard Superfund Site where critics complain that radioactive and
toxic cleanup has been marred by fraud and lax standards.

6. Thursday, 3:00pm – 6:00pm, UC Berkeley Cops off Campus Rally
Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Park
2141 Martin Luther King Jr. Way
Join us on October 1st for the kick-off rally for a statewide campaign demanding the total abolition of the University of California Police Department (UCPD). This is a coordinated day of action which will occur on all ten UC campuses.
Tens of thousands of UC students and staff come from Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Muslim, immigrant communities that are constantly overpoliced through harassment and baseless arrest. The removal of UCPD and ICE from campus is not the endpoint, but the condition of possibility for imagining safety over security. Nearly all full-time UCPD employees make more than $100,000 per year—in the midst of public austerity measures, we demand the $24 million UCPD budget be transferred to the wellness programs and equity initiatives we desperately require.
Host: UC Cops Off Campus
7. Thursday, 4:00pm – 5:30pm (PT); 7:00pm – 8:30pm (ET), Black and Indigenous Liberation through Abolition

As climate change intensifies, some landscapes will be able to hold their own with existing vegetation able to buffer the impacts. Identifying and mapping these areas of relative stability mark a path toward conserving them and the habitat and services they provide to wildlife and humans.
Jim Thorne is the lead author of a recent study that maps these places. The study found that about 15 percent of natural lands in California serve as vegetation refugia for the state’s plants, including trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials.
There is no climate justice without racial justice. That’s why we’re partnering with Stop the Money Pipeline and Indigenous frontline leaders to organize Stop Funding Tar Sands, a day of solidarity with frontline and Indigenous communities fighting back against Tar Sands pipelines like Line 3, Trans Mountain, and Keystone XL.

After many conversations with local rabbi and other Jewish community members, the Sisters have decided that we will Saint Justice Ginsburg on October 2, 2020, 7pm. There was a lot of deliberation about whether Sainting her was appropriate or not, and we feel it is. It’s our highest honor and how we as an Order canonize our (s)heros.
The Sisters are not a religious organization, and our organization is made up of people representing many religions, spiritual practices, and faiths. We do recognize and respect that RBG was proudly Jewish, and we do not feel by Sainting her that we are in any way disrespecting her faith.
We love, cherish and honor Justice Ginsburg for her countless contributions. We affectionately will Saint her as “Saint Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Mensch of Magistrates, Mamele of Justice, and Tzadik Notorious RBG of the Divine Striking Dissent.”

34th & Wood St.
*Wear a mask!*
JOIN US on a bike & car tour of one of Oakland’s biggest evictors, a corporate driver of gentrification, eviction, and displacement. Help us call on our landlord to negotiate with their tenants who are suffering during the pandemic!
SMC (Sullivan MGMT Co.) is a corporate landlord with over 350 properties in the Bay Area. They acquired these properties in auction during the 2008 recession, and have played a major role in the gentrification of Oakland. Over a five-year period, SMC served 357 evictions!
Rather than negotiating in good faith, SMC is asking tenants who can’t pay rent to beg for money from local charities, and put the rent money they don’t have onto credit cards.
SMC’s tenants are organized and we are demanding that SMC negotiate with its tenants in good faith and cancel rent during this pandemic.
Host: SMC Tenants Council & TANC
