We are now on instagram #santacruz_can
We meet and demonstrate at a strategic location. There will be short speeches and open mic time. YOUNG PEOPLE ARE PRIORITY SPEAKERS!!
Then we’ll read a “specific ask” and take it to the appropriate official. (this should be different at each event) The county building houses Federal, State and County officials. We could also target the city of Santa cruz, RTC Regional Transportation Commission or others.
