Sat 10/26 – Sun 10/27: So much to do! 4 local actions!

While our ethically-challenged president is mired in a mess of his own making, we are pushing forward. Here are four actions that will connect you more deeply with this great community.
(See 3 actions you can do from home to help in election and impeachment efforts in other states here)

Action #1: Saturday – 10/26: Join “Ventura Critical Mass” in their first “Solidarity Bide Ride” in Oxnard.

Critical Mass is an unorganized coincidence, a movement of bicycles in the streets, a monthly gathering to celebrate cycling and affirm the rights of cyclists in the streets. It is an idea and an event. It’s free. It is not a race. It’s just for fun. It happens when many cyclists meet in the same place, at the same time and decide to pedal the same route together for a while. The idea is for people to group together, making it safer for each other to ride bicycles through their streets. Saturday, October 26th. Meet at 1pm. The ride starts at 2pm. The route begins near Oxnard’s Downtown Main Library. More information on their Facebook page here.

Action #2: Saturday – 10/26: Volunteer Orientation – Diversity Collective Ventura County.

Sunday 9/29 & onwards: We have so much to do! Mark your calendars – SIX (6) actions!

While our ethically-challenged president is mired in a mess of his own making, we are pushing forward. Here are six hands-on, educational or inspirational immigration-related actions that will make our community better. Join in!

Action #1: THIS SUNDAY- 9/29: Volunteer, help spread the word and/or donate to our local free citizenship fair – Swap Meet Justice! 

What are we doing? We help our neighbors turn their green cards (permanent residency cards) into citizenship. We also help renew green card and DACA applications and sign up new voters. Come help!

Thinking about being a volunteer? You don’t have to be a lawyer. You don’t need to speak a foreign language, but that extra skill is appreciated. You don’t have to be a citizen and you don’t have to be over 18. Teen volunteers are great! Note: First-time volunteers MUST take a 1-hour training course at 8:30 am.

  • More details here!
  • Where: Oxnard Community Marketplace –  Oxnard College Campus.
  • When: We are open from 8am-3pm, last application starting at ±1:00 pm.
