Refuse Fascism-LA organizing meeting - TONITE / Wednesday February 8

We received the following from RefuseFascism-LA:

Southern California resisters!

Join Refuse Fascism-LA TONITE / Wednesday for our next organizing meeting
February 8, 6:30 pm 
Church of the Epiphany in Lincoln Heights
2808 Altura Street LA 
In the face of the dizzying pace of the fascist pronouncements and acts of the Trump/Pence regime, people all over - in likely and unlikely places - are looking for answers, looking for ways to resist, especially in ways which are part of strengthening and growing a larger community of defiance.  One key way to do this is for millions to take up and spread the slogan: "No! In the Name of Humanity-We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America!" This slogan stretches its arms wide to the people of the world, correctly captures the stakes for the future in all its dimensions, and puts before people clearly what must be fiercely opposed.

Getting the unique message, mission and all of the materials of out broadly is critical right now.
Join us to plan next steps to get the message out that the Trump-Pence regime is fascist and must be driven from power by the actions of millions  -- in the name of humanity - before it can be fully consolidated.

This message has to go to the #NoDAPL protests, to the National General Strike Friday, February 17, demonstrations in support of immigrants, #notmypresident day, defense of Planned Parenthood and other important protests.
You can get to Church of the Epiphany from the 110 by taking exit 26b and going east on Avenue 26.  Avenue 26 is "West Avenue 26" until it crosses Daly Street, where it jogs to the right and becomes "East Avenue 26" on the east side of Daly.  Follow Avenue 26 to Griffin, right on Griffin and right on Altura.
From North Broadway (North of the 5) you can get to the church by turning left on Griffin and then left on Altura.
Contact the SoCal chapter at 323.946.1742 or to become an organizer.
