Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Moms will serve as House, Senate and White House aides assisting daughters in their work. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President. During the camp session the campers and moms will meet an elected official or political consultant. Girl Scouts participating in Daughter and Mother Camp Congress for Girls San Francisco will earn a Citizen Legacy Badge upon complete of the program. All participants will earn a Certificate of Completion for participation.

We Reject White Supremacy!

Hosted by SURJ SF - Showing Up for Racial Justice

Justin Herman Plaza

San Francisco, California 94105

Put your beliefs into action! Join us as we answer the call from The Movement for Black Lives for a day of action on August 19! We'll will meet at Justin Herman Plaza, a location that represents the presence of white supremacy in our daily lives here is San Francisco. At this gathering we will form a "human billboard" in this prominent spot, hold signs, and rally to make visible our rejection of white supremacy and our support for the Movement for Black Lives. More details to come!

Why Justin Herman Plaza? As executive director of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, Justin Herman was responsible for the demolition of almost the entire Fillmore district in the 1950’s and 60’s. Leading to the eviction of 461 Black-owned businesses and the displacement of thousands of African-Americans, these actions built on Herman’s history of segregation policies as Head of the Housing and Home Finance Agency. Justin Herman Plaza stands as a daily reminder of white supremacy in San Francisco. City residents are calling on the city to rename the plaza. More on that here: http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2017/07/25/san-francisco-renaming-justin-herman-plaza/

Bring signs and your friends!

Some sign ideas:
End White Silence! 
We Reject White Supremacy!
End White Supremacy!
Black Lives Matter!
White Supremacy is Terrorism!

Sacramento city council is considering a draconian ordinance that will make it impossible to exercise our right to speech and assembly in most areas of the city! The ordinance would impose harsh, unnecessary fines on those accused of violating it-- up to $25,000 a day!

Indivisible Women - Gun Safety Team Meet Up

Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters

671 Maltman Dr, Grass Valley, CA 95945

There's a lot to do!  The number one goal for the gun lobby with the Trump Administration and Congress is National CCW Reciprocity, whereby states with strong gun laws (like California) would be forced to recognize permits to carry loaded, hidden guns in public issued by other states – even by states with virtually no standards for issuing such permits.  This bill would make states with the weakest standards into the law of the land and let criminals and other dangerous people carry concealed, loaded guns in every state.

Black Lives Matter Press Conference - Response to Scott Jones

Hosted by Black Lives Matter Sacramento

Sacramento County Sheriffs Department

711 G St, Sacramento, California 95814

BLM Sacramento wrote a list of demands for transparency for folks killed or abused by our Sacramento Sheriff Department. Normally the sheriff responds by citing a court case (that, by the way, doesn't apply to our requests) telling us why he will not give us any information. NOT THIS TIME THOUGH!

This time he assumed our chapter lead Tanya Faison wrote the letter and responded directly in an attack on her. Our Demands: http://tinyurl.com/y8ruk4dp His Response: http://tinyurl.com/ybnzzehq 

We will be holding a large press conference in response to this letter:
1) Scott Jones does NOT get to tell Black people who their community leaders are.
2) Elected officials should act professionally when speaking to the people in their communities.
3) The demands for transparency were not for Tanya, they were for the family of Mikel McIntyre, the family of Ryan Ellis, and for Patricia Hill. The demands were for information that the public should have access to, and at the least, the individual that the reports concern, should have access to. Cameras won't save us, but if Scott Jones is telling the truth they will support his story. If he gets so angry and denies these requests, all we can do is assume that he isn't being forthcoming with the folks that pay his salary.

Organizations and people that will be joining us:
SacACT - Live Free Committee
NAACP
Black Lives Matter Co-Founder
Black Women United
ACLU
many other community leaders throughout Sacramento

Friday Overpass Protest in Auburn

Hosted by Indivisible Auburn

We use Highway 80 to get our message out to a wider audience.  Each Friday afternoon we post banners on overpasses to educate eastbound drivers.  We gather by the Bell Road overpass at 4:30, west of the freeway and north of Bell Road (across Bell Road from the park-and-ride).  Rain or strong winds may cause us to cancel.


We want to wake people up with fresh messages, so each week we’ll need help creating new banners for that Friday’s message.  Contact Al (text: 530-305-8258) if you want to be one of the elves who make the banners.

Our Lives On The Line - Sacramento

Hosted by Sacramento Indivisible Regional Action Network

California State Capitol, 1315 10th Street, Sacramento, California 95814

On July 29th, Americans are coming together all across the country to say:

OUR LIVES ARE ON THE LINE
If Congress passes Trumpcare and strips our health coverage.

In support of the national healthcare day of action on July 29th, starting at 3PM, we'll get on the phones to encourage like-minded people in other districts to call their members of Congress to voice their healthcare insurance concerns.

Then, at 7PM, we'll hold a rally at the CA State Capitol - North, with civil rights speakers, healthcare testimonials, and a flameless candlelight vigil to honor the very real friends and family whose lives have depended on healthcare and affordable health insurance.

Please bring signs*, flameless candles, a mat or blanket to sit on, and wear black.

Non-partisan. Family Friendly. Free.

Although attendance of this event is supported on a national level, each event is its own grassroots organizing effort.

NO on Big Oil, NO on AB 398
Jul

NO on Big Oil, NO on AB 398

Join environmental, environmental justice, and social justice leaders for a press conference THIS MONDAY at 11am PDT on the North steps of the California State Capitol to say NO to the deeply flawed cap & trade bill - AB 398. 

Assembly Bill 398 -- a bill to extend CA's cap and trade system from 2020 to 2030 -- is stuffed with giveaways to Big Oil and other corporate polluters in order to court Republican support. But sources inside the Capitol report that the bill is vulnerable. We can kill this bill if enough progressive Democrats vote no, despite intense political pressure to support it. 

California can have a stronger carbon reduction strategy that shows the rest of the world what real climate leadership looks like, without forsaking California’s most vulnerable communities. But our political leaders will need to demonstrate the courage to stand up to AB398 and what it represents -- corporate profit first, people second.

JOIN US this Monday and let your voice be heard!
