Alternatively, if you’re a new member, sign up for a 1-to-1 conversation with another member to get all of your burning questions answered!Don’t Call the PoliceThe Justice working group wants to help add local, non-violent resources to the national Don’t Call The Police database by working with various Defund the Police and local groups within SV DSA to get as much geographic coverage as we can. Join us on our #wg-justice Slack channel to learn more and find out how you can contribute.Domestic Violence PSAThe Socialist Feminist (SocFem) working group is developing a Domestic Violence PSA Video. It is well known that the holidays lead to an uptick in domestic violence cases, and with the current stress of the pandemic it is bound to increase dramatically. We will work on creating a video about safety planning for this holiday season, and how various aspects of COVID will impact it. Come to our weekly Tuesday meetings to get involved!Worker Co-Op ZineThe Labor working group is developing a worker co-op zine! We’re looking for people with artistic and writing skills to get involved with this project. Additionally, we’re working on power mapping and organizer trainings. To get involved, join the #wg-labor channel on Slack, or come to our working group meeting Sunday, December 13, 4:30-6pm.Raise Money for Mutual AidThere are a ton of ways to help out mutual aid and those in the community: spread the word about the free store for clothes and check out the holiday toy drive. We’re also hosting another watercolor social fundraiser Saturday, December 12, from 6-7:30 pm. If you’re interested in volunteering on any of these projects, or you have ideas on what our next project should be, sign up!San Jose BLM ProtestAfter George Floyd’s murder, a group of local friends began to meet at SJ City Hall every Saturday to protest police killings.
