Apportionment of many legislative and Congressional seats, and allocation of federal program funding rely on the figures from the decennial census (every 10 years by Constitutional mandate). Trump has been screwing with the census to promote an undercount of underserved communities of color. Online at https://2020census.gov/ Deadline extended by courts after tRump tried to end it in September prematurely — he intends to illegally exclude undocumented people from the tally, even though the Constitution requires enumerating all persons.

Regular, recurring dialogues throughout the year focus on the intersections of multiple identities, including Race and Class, Sexuality and Race, and Gender and Race. Other workshops focus on relationships, Radical White Identity and Community, and issues such as police and the prison industrial complex, immigration, and gentrification.

Topanga Peace Alliance First Friday Film night. The hit documentary “The Social Dilemma” describes how the technology that connects us also controls us.

It is the regime that demonizes and brutalizes immigrants, Black people, Latinos, Native Americans, women, LGBTQ people, the media and peaceful protesters. It is the regime that opposes science, leading to a country and a planet burning and drowning, and to unconscionable unnecessary death and illness from Covid. Beginning Sat, Oct 3, gather and bring your family, friends, and community into the public squares of cities and towns across the country in non-violent protest unified by the demand: Trump/Pence OUTNOW!

From Prop 209 to Prop 16: Historical, Legal & Activist Perspectives on Affirmative Action, 12n PDT / 3p EDT on Zoom; For ASL and other disability issues, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Californians have endured a statewide ban on race- and gender-based affirmative action policies since the passage of Proposition 209, which is widely recognized for its devastating impact on advancing racial justice in labor and education. The 2019 federal court case against Harvard University alleging that affirmative action policies discriminate against Asian-Americans amplifies the need for improved public understanding of affirmative action policies as legal remedies to recognize and dismantle racial harm. In November, passage of Proposition 16 would restore affirmative action in CA. Join us for this panel discussing the legacies of Prop 209 and the promise of Prop 16.
Moderator Prof Vinay Harpalani; panelists:
- Dr. César Cruz, author of Revenge of the Illegal Alien, participant in 1995 hunger strike vs Prop 209
- Prof Cheryl Harris, R & A Gilbert Prof in Civil Rights & Civil Liberties, UCLA School of Law
- Prof Jerry Kang, Distinguished Prof of Law and Asian American Studies, and Founding Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, UCLA School of Law

Unite and coordinate our movement as other struggles against war, for immigrants’ and civil rights, women’s rights and labor unions have done.

Danette Chavis, founder, National Action Against Police Brutality and Murder

DSA-LA Class on Class: Surplus Value & Exploitation, 6-7:30p via zoom. See Oct 1 for details. second module will focus on our role as workers in which we survive by selling our time and our labor to the capitalist class. This second module is designed to deepen our understanding of this exchange between capital and labor—the exchange upon which capitalistic production, or the wage system, is founded. Examining and discussing these concepts together will strengthen our ability to more effectively communicate (and thereby advance) our collective class interests by articulating precisely how and why the relationship between labor and capital is an antagonistic, exploitative one. We’ll investigate how value is created and extracted from workers, why unemployment serves capitalist interests, why capitalism cannot avoid periodic crises, and more.

DSA-LA Class on Class: Class Struggle & Political Struggle, 6-7:30p, see Oct 1 for details. How do we free ourselves from this exploitation in an era of global capitalist hegemony? How does working class power manifest in a system where liberation requires nothing short of revolution? And how is that power wielded? The fight against the ruling class begins with the realization of class consciousness – achieved through both economic and political struggle – and the fight for true democracy and liberation is inextricably tied to the fight for dignity and control of the workplace. If the emancipation of the oppressed under capitalism can only be achieved through their own struggle, then the third Class explores the different tools at our disposal to combat this oppression: the union, the strike, and the political party – their strengths, their shortcomings, and their fallacies – in building class consciousness, directly confronting capital, and spreading the revolutionary spirit.
