The People's 100 Days

Graphic design of different and diverse people announcing "The People's 100 Days" to denounce Donald Trump's First 100 Days in office.

When presidents take office there is particular attention paid to their first 100 days in office. It is a way to compare policies to campaign promises and get a sense of the political trajectory of how they will lead. At De-Bug we believe rather than passively waiting to see what Trump's First 100 days will look like, the community should create our own First 100 days, and make a statement on how we are going protect one another over the next four years.

From Jan. 16, 2017-May 1, 2017 Let's counter the first 100 days of Trump with gatherings, with music, with art, with joy, with the kind of community we continue working to build - outside of what the political arenas offer us to continue to build between all the communities here and foster the kind of relationships that will be what carries us through whatever may come.

Stand With Planned Parenthood
Saturday, February 11, 2017 @ 10AM - 2PM  | Click for Location

Join STAND San José to line The Alameda in support of the Planned Parenthood: San Jose Health Center. Anti-choice protesters are targeting PP locations nationwide on February 11th, but we’re going to turn out and turn up to show the opposition what San José and the Bay are made of! Details are being ironed out with the city, but think block-party-meets-political-demonstration, peacefully affirming the right of all people to safe, affordable reproductive health services, and gender supportive health care. 

We’ll have speakers from the community and local government, activities for kids, and rest areas for elders and folks with disabilities. We’ll also have a postcard station with materials to join in the 10 Actions / 100 Days initiative and tell our representatives that they must support health and choice for all. This event will be accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Like Planned Parenthood itself, this will be a trans supportive space. Honor the space and privacy of Planned Parenthood and their clients, ignore anti-choicers, and respect our neighbors on The Alameda! 




Climate Justice Report Back

The mission of The Disaster Support Network for the Philipinnes (DSNP) is to directly support communities in the Philippines disproportionately impacted by disasters and climate change by fundraising and advocating for relief, recovery, and rehabilitation and environmental justice. We are a community organization based in San Jose.

A few of our members will be sharing about their trip to the Philippines last year. We stayed in primarily farming and fishing communities in Eastern Visayas who are feeling the brunt of climate change though rising sea levels, very extreme weather, and poverty. We'll be having roundtable discussions about the situation in Eastern Visayas, Philippines and a project we hope to support in northern Samar, in an community recently affected by typhoon Nina.
