CALL OUT MEETING

NOVEMBER 17th 2-4PM @ THE HOLDOUT

2313 SAN PABLO, OAKLAND CA

The Bread and Roses Collective is an act of mutual aid.

In light of recent state and police repression, and in solidarity with the long history of anti-racist, anti-capitalist struggle, we seek to create networks of practical support and solidarity.

We reject the sexist notion that caregiving is secondary to any other sort of organizing. Instead, we place this work at the center of building sustainable networks of radical support. We acknowledge the toll that collective and individual trauma has on our lives and we work to create spaces in which we can heal.

*Bread and Roses is a small group of people who have been involved in Occupy Oakland and other Bay Area struggles. We’ve been dreaming about this project, but don’t want ownership or control. We want this to be a collaborative effort that can grow into something that serves the community.

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” –Audre Lorde
