Withdrawing from the Paris Accord (AKA Paris Agreement) is morally wrong and economically unjustified. The announcement has compromised our national security as it has severed our ties with our closest allies and will hurt American progress in creating sustainable, green energy jobs.
Join us on Saturday July 15 to demand that the United States honor its obligations in the Paris Climate Agreement.
We must do this not only for ourselves, but for our children. And our children's children.
We must do this for the future of humanity.
Please share with a friend who values clean air, water, and the future of our home on Earth.

Practicing Collective Care and Radical Self Love in the time of Neo-Fascism: A Case Study on the AF3IRM School of Youth Activism (SOYA)
Presented by Skylar Perez-Grogan, Ivy Quicho and Lorelei Rose Bingamon
$10 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Using AF3IRM’s School of Youth Activism (SOYA) as a vehicle, we explore what collective care means as opposed to self-care. We as transnational feminists believe that practicing self-care is not enough, as it does not address structural oppression that adds to our stress and trauma both as individuals and marginalized communities. SOYA was the first program of its kind, as it combined trauma-sensitive yoga, sensory activities and social justice workshops to fuel the mind-body connection and help teenage girls form a social support network during these turbulent times. This program is part of a Workshop Series that runs throughout the year and supports themes presented in our Annual Spiritual Justice Conferences in Oakland, Los Angeles & New York. The funds will go towards funding the next round of SOYA.
Loralei Bingamon: Loralei Rose Bingamon is a a doctoral candidate of occupational therapy at the University of Southern California. She believes that the connection between the mind, body, breath, and heart is essential to one's physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Her aspirations in this life include empowering individuals and communities with the tools to fight against the negative physical and mental health effects of systemic oppression and find ways to live meaningful and fulfilling lives.
Ivy Quicho: Ivy Quicho is a Filipina American social worker and works as a labor organizer in Los Angeles. She is the National Chairperson of AF3IRM, a transnational feminist, anti-imperialist organization dedicated to grassroots organizing against oppression in all its forms.
Skylar Perez-Grogan: Skylar Perez-Grogan is the Youth Coordinator for the Los Angeles chapter of AF3IRM, a transnational feminist, anti-imperialist organization dedicated to grassroots organizing against oppression in all its forms. She was one of the coordinators for the first ever School of Youth Activism, a youth program that combined trauma-sensitive yoga, sensory activities and social justice workshops. She works as a social services provider for an agency dedicated to helping homeless LGBT youth. A proud Xicana, she believes in the importance of intersectionality within the feminist movement.

AF3IRM’s diverse, multi-ethnic membership is committed to militant movement-building from the United States and effects change through grassroots organizing, trans-ethnic alliance building, education, advocacy and direct action.
With the slogan “a woman’s place is at the head of the struggle,” AF3IRM is an all-volunteer, grassroots organization whose members recognize the intersectionality of their struggles and the absolute necessity of women’s revolutionary resistance.

Join Labor United for Universal Healthcare at our 2017 Summer Garden Party.
Labor United for Universal Healthcare's co-chair Kerry Woods will emcee our event: an afternoon of food and drink, music with guitarist Stan Ayerhoff, comic relief from our own Gerry Daley, and honoring two individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to healthcare for all.
Our 2017 Honorees:
Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) was elected in November 2012 to represent the Southeast Los Angeles County cities of the 33rd Senate District. A long-time advocate for immigrant rights, civil rights, and healthcare justice, Sen. Lara introduced SB 4 in 2015 to provide healthcare coverage for all of California’s undocumented immigrant children and SB 10 in 2016 to ensure that everyone, regardless of immigration status, be allowed to purchase healthcare insurance through Covered California. In February of this year, Sen. Lara and Sen. Toni Atkins introduced SB 562, The Healthy California Act, to provide comprehensive universal single payer healthcare coverage to all Californians.
Leslie Gersicoff, Labor United for Universal Healthcare's Secretary, passed away suddenly in April of this year. Leslie was an inspirational leader, a kind mentor, and a tireless volunteer in the Los Angeles progressive community. She served for the past decade as Executive Director of the Jewish Labor Committee Western Region, and gave her time and energy to many causes. She could always be found on the front lines, standing up and speaking out for the vulnerable and the voiceless, fighting for good jobs, quality public services, dignity for the oppressed, and guaranteed healthcare for all.
