We came together for the first time on November 15th. Since then we have formed a working committee, an offshoot of the original NYC-based Strike Debt, dubbed Strike Debt Bay Area.
Now we're hosting a Debtors' Assembly, where we hope people will come together to learn about a debt system that is strangling us; where we will talk about ways to support each other against it; and where we will brainstorm ways to fight it on both local and national levels.
It will take place at the way cool Eastside Arts Alliance, "an organization of artists, cultural workers, and community organizers of color who live and/or work in the San Antonio district of Oakland."
It's happening on Saturday, February 2nd, at 2277 International Blvd, Oakland, CA. We begin at 2:00 PM.
