One Night Only!

Grand Lake Theater in Oakland
Astra Taylor in person with philosopher Wendy Brown, moderator Anasuya Sengupta and other special guests
Coming at a moment of profound political and social crisis, What Is Democracy? reflects on a word we too often take for granted.
Director Astra Taylor (Zizek!, Examined Life)s idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents: from ancient Athens groundbreaking experiment in self-government to capitalisms roots in medieval Italy; from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor.

Join GLIDEs Center for Social Justice, the Coalition on Homelessness, and the San Francisco Public Library for a special and timely screening of The Public, a new film by writer/director/star Emilio Estevez.
In The Public, an unusually bitter arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library where the action of the film takes place. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather, some homeless patrons turn the building into a shelter for the night by staging an Occupy sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and a rush-to-judgement media constantly speculating about whats really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nations most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness, and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.
A fun and engaging film, The Public is centered on issues of real importance to our community. Our panel and introduction will feature not only celebrities but people who have experienced homelessness and are leaders in our communitys response to this great humanitarian crisis.
The event is free, but spaces are limited, so sign up soon to take part!

When a nation-wide uprising breaks out in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, a young woman in Gaza must make a choice between love, family, and freedom. Undaunted, she embraces all three, joining a clandestine network of women in a movement that forces the world to recognize the Palestinian right to self-determination for the first time. Naila and the Uprising chronicles the journey of Naila Ayesh and a fierce community of women on the front lines, whose stories weave through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history  the First Intifada in the late 1980s.
This film brings out of anonymity these courageous women activists. Engaged at all levels of society, we learn what is possible when women take the lead in struggles for rights and justice and what we lose when they are stripped of their roles. We also witness the tremendous power of nonviolent organizing: massive street rallies, mobile health clinics, underground schools and concerted boycott campaigns, sustaining the uprising while generating indigenous self-sufficiency. We see how women-led civil resistance can stir the masses, put pressure on power-holders, and affect real structural change. Produced by Just Vision and directed by award-winning filmmaker Julia Bacha.
"In 'Naila and the Uprising," female activists are not shiny aberrations--they are the unseen spine holding up a movement."
-- The Daily Beast

Switzerland's Academy Award Entry
In Point Richmond's the Magic Lantern Theater
Switzerland, 1971: Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives with her husband, their two sons and her father-in-law in a little village. Here, in the Swiss countryside, little or nothing is felt of the huge social upheavals that the movement of May 1968 has caused. Nora's life, too, has been unaffected; she is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone - until she begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women's right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7th, 1971.

"Defender" is a feature length film about the critical role that public defenders play in fighting for racial and social justice in America. The film takes viewers on a personal and intense tour through the underbelly of the criminal injustice system, seen through the eyes of SF Public Defender Jeff Adachi, who was one of the nations few elected public defenders. Adachi tells the story of how public defenders came to be, and why they play a critical role as the watchdogs of a system that over-incarcerates people of color and poor people.
Co-presented by KPFA and the New Parkway featuring post-film Q&A with 50% of ticket sales going towards the Jeff Adachi Legacy Fund.
03/18/2019 CalPERS Watch: Sacramento, March 18
Fossil Fuel Investments Take a Dive
In 2018, energy was the worst-performing sector on the SP500 stock index, losing almost 20 percent of its value. CalPERS has significant money invested in fossil fuels and has not revealed its losses, but the numbers dont lie. By failing to divest from fossil fuels, the fund clearly left money on the table. We dont know exactly how much that was in 2018  but starting next year, thanks to SB 964, we will have a clearer idea. CalPERS will be required to report financial risks related to its fossil fuel holdings. In the meantime, with your help, FFCA will continue our efforts to convince CalPERS that divestment is a winner for both the environment and the portfolio.
Please join us at 9 AM on Monday March 18, at the CalPERS Auditorium, Lincoln Plaza North, 400 Q Street, Sacramento, CA 95811. The Board needs to hear a broad spectrum of voices, including yours.
To join us on March 18, or for more information, including about car pools, please contact

03/19/2019 From: Ron Kennedy MD
Since I chose to put myself and my career on the line I have discovered many committed people who are giving it all they have to push back the tyranny of mandatory vaccination. They are not waiting for bills to pass at the California legislature, rather they are discovering the bills coming down the pike and doing what they can do to push them back. California Assembly Bill 262 of 2019 is a proposed law to give health officials extraordinary authority. Now for the adventure...
I invite you to join me and the CA Tribe of The Mom Street Journal in Sacramento March 19. For those living in the Santa Rosa area,

Acclaimed Historian GREG GRANDIN: The End of the Myth: From the Frontier to the Border Wall In the Mind of America
First Congregational Church, 2345 Channing Way, Berkeley
From the very beginning of this nation, the idea of an open frontier has been at the core of our American identity, symbolizing a future full of promise. Today, however, the USA has an entirely new symbol: the border wall. In The End of the Myth, acclaimed historian Greg Grandin explores the meaning of the frontier across the full sweep of US history, from the American Revolution all the way to the Trump presidency. Throughout the centuries, Grandin shows, America's constant expansion served as a "gate of escape," helping to deflect domestic conflicts outward. But this deflection meant that they country's problems, from racism to inequality, were never confronted directly. Now the 2008 financial meltdown and our unwinnable wars in the Middle East have slammed this gate shut, bringing political passions and ugly racist nationalism back home with a vengeance.
Greg Grandin is the author of The Empire of Necessity, which won the Bancroft Prize; Fordlandia, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award, plus a number of other widely acclaimed books, including Kissinger's Shadow, Empire's Workshop, The Last Colonial Massacre, and The Blood of Guatemala.

Workers Run Oakland
Run With Us
We all deserve to work in democratic, equitable, and just workplaces. However, millions of people work under unjust conditions and awful bosses, without even knowing that a better option is out there! Were working to change that by raising awareness about worker cooperatives and worker-self directed non-profits!
On March 24th, were participating in our first-ever marathon fundraiser and were looking for "run-raisers" to run (or walk) with us to make a worker-run Oakland a reality!

Carolyn Forché: What You Have Heard Is True: A Memoir of Witness and Resistance
Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar Street, Berkeley, CA
Carolyn Forché is one of the most gifted poets of her generation. For decades the story of how Carolyn became an effective activist has not been told. At last, in her shimmering, gripping prose, we learn how a fateful encounter and a radical act of empathy changed the course of her life. Carolyn was twenty-seven when a mysterious stranger appeared on her doorstep- a charming polymath with a mind as seemingly disordered as it was brilliant. She'd heard rumors about who he might be: a lone wolf, a communist, a CIA operative, a sharpshooter, a revolutionary, a coffee farmer...He had driven from El Salvador to invite her to his country. Captivated, she accepted and became enmeshed in something beyond her comprehension; they meet with high-ranking military officers, impoverished farm workers, and clergy desperately trying to assist the poor and keep the peace. These encounters are a part of his plan to educate her. As priests and farm-workers are murdered and protest marches attacked, Carolyn is swept up in his work and in the lives of his friends. Pursued by death squads, sheltering in safe houses, the two forge a rich friendship as she attempts to make sense of what she's experiencing and establish a moral foothold amidst profound suffering. She learns how she can act as a witness and translate that into an art that might illumine the lives of others. That is "the poetry of witness," and she has proven to be one of North America's rare practitioners.

Can we develop a fair trade policy that prioritizes worker rights and the environment to replace the current free trade agenda allowing corporations to freely cross borders, exploit workers, pollute and diminish our earths natural resources, while diminishing democratic rights under a global corporate legal structure that undermines local, state and national laws?

Our speakers will give an update on current US trade issues and the upcoming Congressional review of Trumps NAFTA renegotiation, as well as consider the potential of the Green New Deal.

Because of the emergency situation and potential war on Venezuela, organizers will make Venezuela a focus. Colombia (borders Venezuela) is the first NATO partner in Latin America. The U.S. and Colombia planned an invasion of Venezuela in the guise of providing "humanitarian aid".

SF Women Against Rape

The Women's Building

2.2 mile march

Empower survivors, their friends, families and supporters to break the silence by walking together on the streets against rape. Declare that San Francisco will not tolerate sexual violence.
04/26/2019 Are 9-1-1 calls against black and brown people hate crimes? The verdict of Guilty or Not Guilty rests in the hands of the jurors.

On the eve of the courts decision the doors open into the bedrooms of the prosecutors, defendants, key witnesses, BBQ Becky and Permit Patty. What happens behind closed doors in matters of race can no longer be hidden when everybodys dirty laundry is exposed.

Written and directed by Bay Area playwright Jovelyn Richards and starring a cast of local actors, this new play is based on real life 9-1-1 calls.

9-1-1 Whats Your Emergency? premiered as a one-act play at La Peña Cultural Center in 2018 as an artistic response to the local 9-1-1 calls that made BBQ Becky and Permit Patty infamous on a national level. Act one examined how the 9-1-1 call is rooted in micro-aggression, yet can have irreparable consequences to communities of color.

We are so pleased to be presenting a groundbreaking second act, The Verdict, premiering April 26-27, 2019, which further examines the intersection of structural racism and personal psychological narratives that propel the calls.
