May 20th Meeting:

Updates from the RESISTANCE:

Continuing our focus on the Resistance: At our May meeting, Patrick Dill, Melissa Allison and Jason Dickson from Indivisible Orchard City and Swing Left will talk about what their organizations are doing as part of the Resistance.

Meredith Bronson from ACLU PeoplePower will also introduce us to their ongoing Resistance project.

  • People Power is, at its core, a grassroots member-mobilization project. Through People Power, the ACLU will engage volunteers across the country to take action when Trump or his administration attempt to enact unconstitutional policies or trample on people’s constitutional rights. By mobilizing in defense of our civil liberties, volunteers will build local communities that affirm our American values of respect, equality, and solidarity.

As usual, we will get updates from other Resistance Groups and continue the discussion about how we can all work together towards our common goals.

Saturday May 20th  * 2 to 4pm  *  Fairbrae Swim Club  *   696 Sheraton Ave. *   Sunnyvale CA

Congratulations to our newly-elected Executive Board!
