** May (International Worker's) Day in Santa Barbara this Friday

Friday, May 1 (see times below)
Facebook Event: [link removed]
SBDSA chapter members are among many who've planned a pandemic-friendly event for Friday, which is May Day, or International Worker's Day. From the event organizers: "When we say Bail Out the Working Class, we are acknowledging the financial disaster knocking at the door of many renters, homeowners & small businesses, and are calling for a systemic response. That is why we say we want a #DebtFreeFuture in #CancelRents & #CancelMortgages to support workers and small businesses. We've Bailed Out Wall Street Corporations before, its time to Bail Out the People."
* COVID-Safe Care Rally - Care about workers that care about you. Car rally will meet at 5:30 pm and start at 6:00 pm. If you want to participate, contact [email protected]

* To top it off, join us at the First Friday El Centro SB Open Mic at 7:30 pm to celebrate workers and uplift the art of our "Earth Day to May Day" social media campaign

* Volunteer to help set up and manage new technologies that will improve member engagement, communication, and day to day organizing.

* Push for Healthcare for All, as part of our "Earth Day to May Day coalition with CAUSE" - Please call Salud Carbajal’s office at (805) 730-1710 and urge him to cosponsor H.R. 5010, Rep. Khanna and Ocasio-Cortez’s bill to provide a pathway for states to enact universal healthcare with Federal support.
California Governor Newsom has appointed a commission to study universal healthcare and the Federal bill would go a long way in making state-based universal healthcare possible. Beyond that, the California legislature also needs to step up and put forward solutions of their own. Please contact Monique Limon at (805) 564-1649 and Steve Bennett at (805) 620-7118 to ask them to re-introduce a single payer bill in the State legislature."
