We're proud of our many achievements over the years, but we're really proud of our actions since the shocking outcome of last November's election. Our record demonstrates that years of experience and deep roots in the local community equal effective action. Here's some of what we've been up to over the past 12 months ...
The morning after the election we started organizing an emergency response. Four days later, over 150 people heard powerful talks by our invited speakers, then were deeply moved by the words of over 30 people who eloquently took advantage of the open mic. In times like these, PPJC is always ready to bring us together to allow our voices to raised and heard.
On the eve of the Electoral College vote (December 18), PPJC brought hundreds of people to the streets to say no to the politics of fear and hate.
Hundreds gathered at our rally & vigil on January 20. And they came despite the cold and driving raid.
In February, we helped mobilize dozens of activists in Los Altos who were asking their city council to protect our immigrant neighbors and friends.
To "celebrate" the Ides of March, PPJC hosted a social gathering at which people used our Twitter account to send the new "president" their thoughts about his policies.
Hundreds gathered on a sunny April 15 tax day to protest proposed increases to the war budget. Reining in militarism has long been agenda item #1 for PPJC.
For the seventh year in a row, PPJC co-sponsored and helped organize the annual march and rally for immigration reform. Sí se puede!
The very same evening that Trump announced he was pulling the U.S. our of the historic Paris Climate Agreement, we were in the streets saying we're staying in!
PPJC helped organize and provided critical infrastructure support for a massive rally against hate speech, racism, neo-Nazis, and other disturbing trends of Trump's America.
Since the November election, PPJC has organized 16 public forums to help educate and inspire people to greater action. Whether it's bringing well-known speakers like AMY GOODMAN or lesser known policy experts, these events create a solid, informed foundation for effective action.
