Group Description

In the wake of the 2016 general election, a group of progressive community leaders and organizers have come together to re-start the Santa Barbara Progressive Coalition (SBPC). Its goals include:

- Facing the threats that the President-elect and his Cabinet pose to the people of the United States, the world, and most importantly our local communities here in Santa Barbara
- Advancing progressive values of diversity, inclusive communities, economic justice, environmental protection, affordable health care and women’s reproductive health, immigrant rights, LGBQT rights, public education, anti-corruption in government and politics, and protecting the Bill of Rights, particularly the rights and liberties of the First Amendment
- Brainstorming ideas for action and taking action - at meetings, and in between meetings
- Supporting one another

SBPC was initially formed in 2004 by individuals who had been active in the Dean, Kucinich, and Clark presidential campaigns. The group met monthly for three years and had an active email list. Similarly, we hope that people who volunteered for the Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton campaigns, those who have been active in progressive organizations, and those who are newly interested in getting involved, will find a place where they can attend meetings, stay up to date on local efforts, get involved as participants, and if interested, lead actions.

Please join us for bi-weekly meetings. Children are welcome to attend. Our first meeting will take place on Monday, December 12 from 5:30-7:30pm at Casa de La Raza, located at 601 E. Montecito in downtown Santa Barbara. Our second meeting will take place on Monday, January 9 from 5:30-7:30pm at Casa de La Raza, and we intend to have bi-weekly meetings thereafter.
