SCHEDULE OF EVENTS|
Nov. 2, Election day. Vote!
Evening - Art-making party and watching the election returns at the Sonoma County Peace & Justice Center. 467 Sebastopol Ave in Santa Rosa.
Nov. 3rd, the day after the elections --
10am: Gather at Courthouse Square in Santa Rosa. WEAR RED, for Code Red, to demonstrate our recognition that our democracy, and so much more, is in a state of emergency. From there we are planning a eulogy and funeral procession for democracy, targetting local examples of democracy's death, followed by a rebirth of inspiration.
Literature about the state of democracy in America, and why we're in the streets and possible next steps will be available for people to distribute to the Santa Rosa lunchtime crowd afterwards or on the march.
1.30pm: Food not Bombs will serve food from the Unitarian Universalist courtyard. Their building is located at 547 Mendocino Ave, cross street 7th.
2pm-4.30pm: Democracy outbreak. A gathering for people to discuss the events of the day, the trends of our movement, and next steps. Lightly facilitated with an emphasis on small group discussion, this is truly what democracy looks like. Also at the Unitarian building.
5pm-7pm: Reconverge at courthouse square for a vigil to provide a last gathering point for the day, and to offer solidarity for those that couldn't miss the day at work.
