We tell them, “Stay here, we can bring it to you.”     Address: POBox 2771, Berkeley CA 94702     Voice: (510) 560-4CTH (4286)     Email: info@ConsiderTheHomeless.org     Web: http://www.considerthehomeless.org     [11 Nov 2016]

Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS)     Believes that the healing impact of the human-animal bond is one of the best supports available for medically vulnerable individuals, and mounting evidence indicates that this bond can yield valuable health outcomes.

While I like to get email about events, I can't promise to list everything in this calendar that I'm told about.

Refuse Fascism     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.     Web: https://refusefascism.org/     [03 Feb 2017]
