Help California Fire Victims

Official Action for Saturday, November 17

The ongoing wildfires in California are causing a housing crisis. As of this writing, about 9,700 homes have been destroyed. Evacuation centers across their state are doing their best to help out with the massive influx of displaced Californians, but they need our help.

Working with a network of California-based Indivisible chapters, Indivisible Berkeley has spotlighted the North Valley Community Foundation as a good place to give to support those who have lost their homes to the fires. If you are able, please consider giving:

Share this cause with your friends on social media, even if you are unable to contribute financially!

A Local Activist Needs Asylum

When Trump’s State Department revoked passports for transgender people this summer, one such person was Danni Askini, Former Executive Director of Gender Justice League in Seattle. Danni is currently seeking refuge in Sweden. If she is not allowed to stay there, she will be sent back to the US, where she has been told she will be arrested for illegal entry and put in a male prison.

Sign this petition for Danni’s asylum, and share it with others:

Danni specifically asked for help raising awareness any way you can: use social media and reach out to any media contacts you might have. This week is trans awareness week so write a letter to the editor about her!

How else can you help? Give to Danni’s GoFundMe:
