SCOTUS’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has come as an unwelcome shock to millions of people, regardless of childbearing status. Reproductive rights are human rights, full stop, and every person deserves to make their own healthcare choices privately and without interference. This decision is a huge setback, but it isn’t the end. There is still much that can be done. Please join SURJ South County (Showing Up for Racial Justice) for a panel discussion on what this decision means and what steps you can take next to make a difference, including supporting existing organizations, voting and donating

STAND WITH US — The sacred ceremonial heartland of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band near Gilroy, CA is threatened by a proposed 403-acre sand and gravel mining operation.
Santa Clara County has released an environmental analysis of the project and soon will decide whether to approve or deny permits for the mine. If built, this project would devastate pristine grasslands and woodlands, impair a critical wildlife movement corridor, and desecrate Amah Mutsun (Ohlone) sacred sites.
Join us in front of the Santa Clara County building on Sept. 10 to stand together for the land, for cultural survival, and to show the strength of our collective determination to protect Juristac!
We encourage you to plan to attend the Rally with a team of friends, carload of family members, or boatload of colleagues. Consider meeting up with your team beforehand, or starting a text message/Signal group to coordinate plans.
Please help us get the word out!
