Sea Our Problems Art Install - Lake Merritt
Public · Hosted by Meia Mats Rachel Haight invited you
Lake Merritt-Uptown Oakland
388 19th St, Oakland, California 94612
We are building a large plastic trash art installation >>Sea Our Problems<< & would LOVE your help!
WHY
Every nine minutes the weight of a blue whale - 150,000 lbs - of plastic enters the ocean globally. 91% of plastic isn't recycled, even if you put it in the blue bin. And China no longer wants our plastic waste (not surprised) so they've passed along to countries like Malaysia who is now returning plastic to Spain, etc. As you can see, plastic trash is a huge global issue, and it's polluting our oceans, killing wildlife, and needs attention now.
So this is where you come in.
WHAT
Bay Area based Chromaforms Art Collective with Martin Taylor and Meia Matsuda are building a giant sculpture for KEENfest in Denver. "Sea Our Problems" is an immersive art installation made using plastic tarps cut into ribbons. As a large-scale art installation with a tight timeline, we need your help with the fabrication.
HOW
We've sourced plastic sheeting leftover from conventions and festivals to transform our waste into beauty. We fold the sheets, cut into thin ribbons, and attach to our mesh frame. Please join us in this process. All you need is some helping hands and scissors (we will provide some, but never hurts to bring your own).
The plastic can be attached to the frame using a simple knotting technique.

Alameda County Offices, Board of Supervisors, 5th Floor
1221 Oak Street, Oakland, CA 94612
The Alameda County Board of Supervisors Transportation & Planning Committee has been discussing potential changes to its policy on pesticide use.

06/07/2019 SENSIBLE CINEMA, sponsored by the Social Justice Council of the Unitarian-Universalist Center of San Francisco, invites you to a special screening of "Knock Down the House"

In November, 2018, four young women ran, for the first time, for election to the U.S. House of Representatives. They represented different social, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and came from different parts of the country. But they were united by a common conviction:
The status quo is unacceptable.
. . . and by a common goal:
To challenge it.

This Netflix-produced movie won the 2019 Sundance Film Festival Favorite Award. It tells the story of how four courageous progressives are fighting for equality and justice in a society that seems increasingly stacked in favor of the privileged few against the vast majority of working people.
Its our fight, too.

Fight Like a Mother: An Evening with Shannon Watts
Rakestraw Books, 3 Railroad Ave, Danville
Shannon Watts was a stay-at-home mom folding laundry when news broke of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. In one moment, she went from outraged to engaged and decided to do something about it. What started as a simple Facebook group to connect with other frustrated parents grew into Moms Demand Action, a national movement with millions of supporters and a powerful grassroots network of local chapters in all 50 states. Shannon has been called "the NRAs Worst Nightmareand her army of moms have bravely gone up against the gun lobby, showing up in their signature red shirts, blocking the hallways of congress with their strollers, electing gun sense candidates and running for office themselves, and proving that if the 80 million moms in this country come together, they can put an end to gun violence.
Fight like a Mother is the incredible account how one mothers cry for change became the driving force behind gun safety progress. Along with stories of perseverance, courage, and compassion, Watts shines a light on the unique power of womenstarting with what they have, leading with their maternal strengths, and doubling down instead of backing down. While not everyone can be on the front lines lobbying congress, every mom is already a multi-tasking organizer, and Shannon explains how to go from amateur activist to having a real impact in your community and beyond. Fight like a Mother will inspire everyonemothers and fathers, students and teachers, lawmakers, and anyone motivated to enact changeto get to work transforming hearts and minds, and passing laws that save lives.
Rakestraw Books is delighted to invite you to a special evening with Shannon Watts. Please join us. tickets $29

Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse
1301 Clay St · Oakland, CA
The rally will be in the plaza in front of the Federal Building
Indivisible East Bay is joining with Alameda4Impeachment to host the flagship Bay Area event to call for the House of Representatives to initiate an impeachment inquiry regarding Donald Trump and his Administration.
The event will be held outside Representative Barbara Lees office in Oakland, which is in the
Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse ["the Federal building"]. It is easily accessible by BART.
When: Saturday, June 15; 1:00 pm
Where: 1301 Clay Street, on the plaza in front of the Federal Building
We want to thank Rep. Lee for being the only East Bay representative so far to cosponsor H.Res. 257 (to initiate an impeachment inquiry).
What is an impeachment inquiry?
" it doesn't imply an immediate up-or-down vote;
" it doesnt draw any conclusion about removal of a president;
" it's a professional effort to focus an investigation, by the one committee designed to do so (the House Judiciary Committee), into possible impeachable offenses by Donald Trump and his administration
06/15/2019 Please join us on the afternoon of June 15 for an inspiring afternoon with AnnaLise Hoopes, founder of The Changemaker Project and Margot Gibney, executive director of the Encampment for Citizenship.

Afternoon snacks and drinks will be provided. We hope to see you there. Potluck vegan dinner for anyone who wants to stay

The Encampment for Citizenship (EFC) provides young people (ages 15-18) of different backgrounds with a three-week experience in democratic living and working together designed to develop social justice leadership. The shared experience of living together and forming a democratic community is critical to providing essential communication and living skills for these current and future activists. Each Encamper will design an individual organizing/change project to be initiated upon their return home and EFC will provide guidance and ongoing support in achieving their individual goals. This July, the Encampment will be held on the Central Coast of California and will focus on labor, immigration, and environmental issues. Encampers will have the opportunity to work and talk with farmworkers, growers, organic farmers, environmental activists and labor organizers. On July 6, in collaboration with the local community, they will be working to create a pesticide-free school site, addressing a serious health issue for the children and neighbors.

Economics Book Group  Take Back the Economy.
Omni Commons, 4799 Shattuck Ave., Oakland
Reading: Introduction and First Chapter of 'Take Back the Economy.' What can we, as individuals do, to seek a more just, sustainable and equitable world?
"Take Back the Economy dismantles the idea that the economy is separate from us and best comprehended by experts. Instead, the authors demonstrate that the economy is the outcome of the decisions and efforts we make every day. The economy is thus reframed as a space of ethical action - something we can shape and alter according to what is best for the well-being of people and the planet.
Strike Debt Bay Area hosts this economics-oriented, non-technical book discussion group, meeting approximately once a month. This month's discussion will be about the introduction to and first chapter of 'Take Back the Economy' by J K Gibson-Graham, Jenny Cameron and Stephen Healy. We will decide at the end of the meeting whether to continue through the whole book or move on.
The book is available via online (e.g. Minnesota Press), the introduction is available via 'Look Inside', and a few copies exist in local libraries.
Bring your questions, comments and intellectual curiosity!

JOHN CARLOS FREY: Sand and Blood: Americas Stealth War on the Mexico Border
St. Johns Presbyterian Church, 2727 College Avenue, Berkeley
Benefits KPFA Radio 94.1FM
Sand and Blood: Americas Stealth War on the Mexico Border is a damning portrait of the southern border, where militaristic fantasies are being unleashed and violent technologies are being tested, always targeting impoverished immigrants.
The groundwork for our current situation began in the 1980s and 1990s. But after 9/11, while Americans attention was trained on the Middle East, a War on Terror was ramping up on our own soilaimed not at terrorists but at economic migrants, refugees, and families from South and Central America seeking jobs, safety, and freedom in the US. The Border Patrol grew exponentially, ICE detention centers cropped up across the country, and the southern border has become more militarized than ever before. But we are no safer. Instead, families are being ripped apart, undocumented people are living in fear, and thousands of migrants have died in detention or crossing the border.
John Carlos Frey is an investigative reporter and documentary filmmaker based in Los Angeles. A five-time Emmy Award winner, he is a special correspondent for PBS NewsHour, a former correspondent for The Marshall Project, and a longtime Type Investigations journalist at the Type Media Center.
