Many of you may be headed for L.A. or perhaps Washington for
larger protests this coming weekend, but if you’re here in Santa
Barbara on Inauguration Day and are looking for a way to make
yourself heard, here are the details of an entirely community led
day of action.

The purpose of this demonstration is not only to show how many
people are against the Trump presidency, but also to get community
members plugged in to the many organizations/groups that are ready
to resist the coming administration by getting volunteers signed
up to help. To facilitate such volunteerism, tabling will be
available in De La Guerra Plaza throughout the SB Inauguration
Demonstration. To learn more, please see our Invitation to
Participate.

It’s Been A Busy Fall

Here’s what we’ve been up to

thanks to the volunteers who made it possible:

Registering Voters: Our outreach team on the SBCC campus registered over 200 voters once students returned to campus. That operation, along with tabling at the Pacific Pride Festival in August and the Coalition Against Gun Violence’s Concert Across America in September, was led by Jim MacMillanwith consistent help from a team of volunteers taking multiple shifts over several weeks:
