Event Type Party/Street Party
Organizer/Author
On Feb 26th, a group called "Take Back Santa Cruz" will descend upon the Lower Ocean Neighborhood (in front of the Little Caesar's at Ocean and Barson @ 6:30pm). They will be advocating an increased police presence, more surveillance cameras, and for neighbors to "call the cops first and ask questions later".

While this group claims to promote a "safer" Santa Cruz, we feel that their goals will make most of us in the Lower Ocean neighborhood less safe.

We will not be safer if cameras watch our every move or if the police feel welcome to enter people's homes, harass groups hanging out, and report people they detain to ICE.

Rather than create an atmosphere of suspicion and distrust, where we jump to calling the police before we talk to each other, we want to live in a community where we know our neighbors and take care of each other.

Let's get together to have a good time and talk about the future of our community.
