11/16/2016 SOLIDARITY SUNDAY ACTIONS
3 THINGS TO DO TODAY!
1. Donate to Foster Campbell's runoff campaign in Louisiana—this is a real shot at flipping a Senate seat. A Campbell victory would mean a 51-49 split in the Senate; not a majority, but one seat closer, and a better position for 2018.
2. Call San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon and ask him to drop the charges and fines against the #BayBridge25, the brave group of activist who blocked the Bay Bridge in January on MLK Day to bring attention to the struggle for Black Lives. One of the activists, Kathryn Ann Snyder, is part of this group, and we stand in solidarity with them all.
DA George Gascon 415-553-1751
Sample call script:
"Hi, I’m calling today to ask DA Gascon to drop the charges against the Bay Bridge 25. By bringing charges against them5, he sends the message that this is the best use of resources in your office and the optimal way to pursue justice in this community. Based on other statements he has made, this seems out of character. Tell George to drop the charges now. Thank you."
3. Make your support, love, and solidarity VISIBLE. Take a moment to create or print out a sign for your home window/car window/ cubicle/workplace/classroom. Black Lives Matter; Everyone Belongs Here; Love Trumps Hate; #StillWithHer…
