Please join us for a special meeting of the 9 County Bay Area Regional Steering Committee.

We'll be hearing reports from the Season of Non-violent Direct Actions in San Francisco and Washington D.C., and introducing a next steps proposal for building the campaign in the region.

Forward together, not one step back!

Season of Non-violent Direct Actions Demands:

1. End the filibuster
2. Pass all provisions of the For the People Act
3. Fully restore the Voting Rights Act
4. Raise the minimum wage to $15/hr
5. Establish permanent protections for all undocumented immigrants

The "Moral Monday" event. . .follows last week's 27-mile, four-day march in Texas, one of several states where GOP lawmakers have attacked voting rights this year. . ."
