Peoples Assemblies are new for 2023. Collaborative actions and mutual aid are valuable community responses to concerns and as alternatives to relying on unresponsive government. An Extinction Rebellion demand is to hold Peoples Assemblies to take action because government is not acting quickly or effectively on the climate emergency, threat of nuclear annihilation, racism, poverty, and other problems. Together we can generate solutions, connect in community, be heard, be creative. Limited seating; you must register for the assembly in advance and to reserve free childcare: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/berkeley-community-peoples-assembly-tickets-503288949797 Agenda: Welcome and introductions, brief presentations on 1) banking responsibly; moving your money to 'good' banks & credit unions that don't finance nuclear weapons or fossil fuel projects, presented by Third Act/350.org 2) ending the war in Ukraine, presented by CODEPINK with video from Medea Benjamin 3) saving rooftop solar in California, presented by Solar Rights and Clean Energy Alliances. Discussions focusing on solutions and generating ideas for future Assemblies. Snacks, free childcare by reservation to codepinksfbay@gmail.com, handouts, door prizes.
