CEOs vs Workers: Live Town Hall on Corporate Power

Hosted by TYT Network and 2 others

The average cashier at McDonald's would have to work for 895 years to make what the company's CEO makes in one year. Disney's CEO gets over $400 million in compensation while Disneyland workers can't afford three meals a day. Amazon's CEO is the wealthiest man in the world while thousands of Amazon workers rely on public assistance to make ends meet. The United States is the richest country in the history of the world, and yet due to outrageous levels of inequality there are millions of workers who live in poverty or can barely get by. 

Sen. Bernie Sanders has invited CEOs and workers from four major corporations—Amazon, Disney, McDonald's and Walmart—to hold a conversation on corporate power in America and how to move forward to create an economy that works for all people, not just a few at the top. The town hall will be presented in partnership with digital media outlets act.tv, Good Jobs Nation, NowThis, TYT Network, Guardian US, ATTN: and Free Speech TV, The Nation Magazine, CREDO Mobile and MoveOn. 

TO WATCH ONLINE: Go to www.facebook.com/senatorsanders at 7 PM EST on July 16th.

Can American Democracy Be De-Polarized? Some Thoughts on Restoring Democratic Discourse and Accountability (San Francisco)

Political polarization in contemporary American politics doesn’t simply reflect the fact that we are more sharply divided on the issues but instead stems from deeper structural forces like rising economic inequality, declining social mobility, rapid cultural change,and the reorganization of the public sphere with the rise of digital and social media. If correct, this suggests that in order to make our politics less divisive and fractious we cannot simply will ourselves to be more open to the other side but must instead seek to address the structural causes of polarization. This would require a successful reactivation of what will be described as the politics of democratic self-repair, i.e. when democratic citizens mobilize to fix problems with democracy itself. In this talk Professor David Peritz will discuss the general idea of this kinds of politics, the impediments to its successful reactivation in the early 21st century, and some recent more promising developments.

Turn Arizona Blue with Sean Bowie (San Francisco)

Hosted by Sister District San Francisco

Join Sister District SF and local activists to turn Arizona Blue! In coming to support State Senator Sean Bowie on July 19th you're doing three things:

1) You're helping flip one of the red-est State Senates Blue. We need to hold Bowie's seat and flip only 3 more seats to take control of the AZ State Senate.

2) You're stopping candidates like Joe Arpaio from going to Congress! We know that when Democrats turn out to vote down ticket, they are going to vote at the top of the ticket.

3) In accomplishing #1 you eliminate a testing ground for Republican legislation. Don't forget AZ has introduced legislation that; stops schools from banning firearms on campus, stops local cities from passing soda-taxes, and has introduced numerous anti-choice bills. 

ALL of these things stand in opposition to San Francisco values. In coming to this fundraiser you are saying no to laws just like these. Hope you can join us to learn more about Senator Bowie, why this race is important, and the impact of the Sister District Project.  If you can’t attend the party, you can donate at http://bit.ly/Sean4AZSenate

Malcom Nance: How Russia is Destroying Democracy (San Francisco)

  • 110 The Embarcadero, Taube Family Auditorium San Francisco, CA, 94105 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Retired intelligence officer Malcolm Nance knows about Vladimir Putin and the threat he poses to American sovereignty. From the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our elections to Putin’s persistent presidency, Russia has a looming presence. Nance suggests this presence isn’t benign but part of a greater plan to break down western democracy.

His new book, The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin’s Spies Are Winning Control of America and Dismantling the West, exposes how Russia has supported the campaigns of right-wing extremists throughout the United States and Europe. By seeking to create antidemocratic sentiment around the world, Nance argues Putin can leverage his strength to build a Russian-led alliance of nondemocratic autocracies. With the future of democracy hanging in the balance, Nance digs into the plans and goals of its enemies. 

Join Nance for an important conversation about Russia’s plan to unseat democracy and learn what we can do about it.

Families Belong Together - Block ICE (San Francisco)

Hosted by Families Belong Together - East Bay and 3 others

Take action to show ICE that they are not welcome to operate in our community! San Francisco is a sanctuary city! In the last few weeks, we've witnessed the horror of the administration's escalating human rights abuses against immigrants on the border. We've seen caged children cry for their parents, we've seen asylum seekers prosecuted and deported. We are committed to doing what it takes to stop children from being torn from their families, or imprisoned with their families. We are envisioning a future without ICE - it has only existed for fifteen years, we can abolish it. We will keep fighting against the xenophobic and racist Muslim Ban. #NoMuslimBanEver

The action will be family-friendly and have activities for kids. To plug into the action and get trained in Nonviolent Direct Action, attend one of the following trainings:

Thursday, June 28th 6-9pm

Dan Pfeiffer, Co-Host of Pod Save America and Former White House Communications Director

How did we get here and what do we do next?

Pfeiffer was one of President Obama’s longest-serving advisors, working on two presidential campaigns and spending 6 years in the White House as communications director and senior advisor to the president. Now he co-hosts the wildly popular Pod Save America podcast, along with Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, which brings insiders' expertise to bear in a twice-weekly discussion about the latest happenings in the White House and Congress.

Pfeiffer shares never-before-heard stories about working in the Oval Office and reflects on those years of massive change that helped rewrite the rules of politics. He addresses the current political landscape and offers a hopeful message for where our country can go from here.

Day of Action at West County Detention Facility (Richmond, CA)

 Hosted by Cleve Jones and Edward Wright

The only ICE facility in the Bay Area is located within the West County Detention Facility in Richmond, CA and operated by the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office. On any given day, approximately 200 immigrants are detained there. Contra Costa County Sheriff John Livingston refuses to permit local organizations and elected officials to inspect the facility. One of his deputies was recently arrested and charged with sexual assault against two inmates. We are working with Richmond-based community organizations, labor unions and immigrant rights groups to protest Trump's cruel immigration policies as well as the racial disparities in our justice system that contribute to mass incarceration of people of color, particularly African-Americans. Please join us this Tuesday, all day, as we stand against Trump's racist policies. Additional details will be posted daily, including endorsements and transportation information.

A Bipartisan Approach to Health Care Reform

Early in 2018, many of the best known leaders from across American health care joined forces to launch United States of Care, a bipartisan initiative to ensure access to quality, affordable health care for every American. The founding belief is that when political rhetoric is removed, Americans outside of Washington agree more than they disagree about health care access and coverage. The organization seeks politically and economically viable solutions that can garner broad support that won’t disappear with the next election or presidential administration. The group’s Board and Founders Council is a who’s who of U.S. health care, several of whose members will be on hand for this lively discussion.

Come out to enjoy a view of the fireworks from the stadium and help light up Arizona's 18th District as our guests!  The GOP still cheats to win elections, holding far more representation than they deserve. Help turn the tide in Arizona! Donations to Democrats in state legislative races like Sean Bowie's -- especially those in GOP trifectas -- are the key to reversing the political fate of our country. If you can't celebrate in person with us, you can still contribute to support Sean Bowie on ActBlue.
