We are continuing to meet jointly with activists from Indivisible Berkeley, Democratic Socialists of America, the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, and other progressive organizations who also are working on issues of racial justice and criminal justice reform. We focus mainly on the local level but to some extent on the state and federal levels. We meet the first and third Thursdays of each month.
