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.

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!

BLACK WOMEN UNITED hosts the 1st Annual “Ain’t I A Woman” March. The purpose of this unprecedented event is to give all Black women a platform to express themselves and fight for their civil rights.
As Black women, whether you're a straight Black woman, a trans Black woman, a religious, spritual, or atheist Black woman, we are ALL constantly having to reaffirm our place in the world and why we deserve to be here.
Historically and presently, efforts have been made to 'put us in our place' and to stop us from speaking our mind. The concept of 'Ain't I a Woman' (AIAW) is a challenge, but also an affirmation. It is not a question, but rather a powerful statement or declaration of our womanhood and demanding all of the respect, adoration, and acceptance that should come with it.
This will be a venue for us to speak our minds. To rejoice, cry, heal, and love. There will be political elements, but there will also be art. There will be uncomfortable topics addressed, but there will be joyous moments. The march and rally will swell with the ancestral energy of overcoming, inspiring, and empowering elements that we as black women are genetically made up of.
This an all-inclusive event and Black women from ALL walks of life are encouraged to attend.

The racist, sexist, and otherwise hate-filled and discriminatory messages coming from the white house have led to an increase in attacks against already vulnerable communities across the nation. The purpose of Signs for Solidarity is to be a visible, vocal force of love and support for people of color, immigrants, the LBGTQ+ community, religious minorities, and all those who are under increased threat.
We have plenty of signs to share, but if you prefer to bring your own sign we ask that you please keep it on-message. Some examples: "Black Lives Matter," "Immigrants Make America Great," "Transgender Rights are Human Rights," "You Belong Stay Strong," and "Build Kindness Not Walls."
We hope to see you there!

Verge Center for the Arts is hosting Nasty Women Sacramento, a fundraiser exhibition modeled after the original Nasty Women exhibition, which was held in January at the Knockdown Center in Queens, New York. The exhibition featured donated works of art from female and female-identifying artists, and raised over $42,000, with all proceeds from sales going to Planned Parenthood. Since it's original inception, dozes of other national and international "nasty venues" around the country have held their own exhibitions, with more being planned.
Indivisible East Bay's Outreach Team invites IWNC members to an event they're co-presenting with Sister District CA-13 on June 17 in Berkeley. "How to Talk to Trump supporters" is a daylong workshop that teaches people how to use Powerful Non-Defensive Communication when conversing with Trump supporters or swing voters. The prospect of such a conversation horrifies most progressives, but the reality is that if we don't flip some of the voters who went for Trump--be they our family members or residents of swing districts where we're canvassing and phonebanking--we won't be able to flip Congress in 2018 or dump Trump in 2020.

Immigrants are welcome here. A national tour against Muslims encouraging Islamophobia has chosen the city of Roseville to represent Northern California. It is vital that we show that these hateful views do not represent the people of California. They claim to be in favor of Human Rights and yet they are silent about the thousands of innocent people killed in American air strikes or the hundreds of Islamophobic hate crimes that came after Trump's election. In reality, just like the Alt-Right is not about free speech, Trump supporters and Republicans are not marching for human rights. We know very well that they stand for hatred, bigotry and intolerance.
Join us as we stand in solidarity with immigrant communities to say that we will not tolerate scapegoating or the targeting of immigrant communities whether they are from Iraq, Mexico or Haiti.
