We put together a short list of ways to make your Thanksgiving a day of economic and racial justice:
1) Check out this Racial Justice Guide to Thanksgiving!
Shout-out to the Center for Racial Justice in Education for compiling this Racial Justice Guide to Thanksgiving, which provides “resources that range from lesson plans to narratives that uplift the perspectives and contributions of the Native American community.”
2) Gather signatures for a People's Budget in Oakland!
This is the final week of The Community Democracy Project’s 6-month signature gathering campaign to add a ballot initiative that would let Oakland residents directly vote on how city budget dollars are allocated. Help CDP bring a People’s Budget to Oakland!
3) Help decommodify land & labor!
Skip Black Friday Sales and support your local worker-owned cooperative instead!
Pay the Shuumi Land Tax to the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust. The Shuumi Land Tax is a voluntary annual financial contribution that non-Indigenous people living on traditional Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone territory make to support the critical work of the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust.
Become a member of the East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative. EB PREC is transforming our unjust financial & housing system to build collective wealth and redistribute the resources to historically disenfranchised Black, Indigenous, and POC communities.*
