March 4th Mass Meeting & Trainings
March 4, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Online registration for the Bay Resistance March 4th Mass Meeting and Trainings is now closed due to capacity. Please see our “Frequently Asked Questions” below.
Some Frequently Asked Questions
Online registration is closed. Can I still attend?
Due to space, we have closed our online registration form. It’s unlikely that everyone will attend so you can still try to register onsite on Saturday. While there is still space available to attend our mass meeting and opening program (from 1:30-2:30 pm), we can’t guarantee you a spot in a training.
Is this event free?
Yes!!! We are accepting donations since this is being put on largely by volunteer efforts. Please make a donation today so that we can provide an accessible event for people with disabilities, interpretation for non-English speakers, and childcare for families! Donate here: https://bayresistance.org/donate/
I’m not able to stay for the whole event. Is that cool?
Yep it’s fine if you can’t make the entire program. The first hour is about getting to know one another: sharing who we are as Bay Resistance and our vision, and hearing from powerful organizers who have been doing the work. From 3-5:30pm, there will be three different training tracks, and everyone has the opportunity to attend only one training. Even if you can only make one or the other, please be sure to sign up for our updates and action alerts by visiting the BayResistance.org website for any future updates.
I can’t make it. Will there be recordings and/or training material available? Will you do this again another time?
We are currently working on having a videographer record the opening program and speakers. If possible, we will share that recording after the event via email or on our website.
For those who cannot join us this time, we hope to have more training opportunities in the future. You can also join us for the next big Bay Resistance mobilization on May 1st, which will be a general strike and what some are calling “A Day Without Immigrants.” Stay tuned for more details!
Will childcare be provided? Can I bring my kids?
Yes. Please register and answer the childcare question with how many kids and what ages. We will provide childcare for all children. Those older are welcome to attend the meeting and trainings or to be in the childcare space. If the weather permits, we may take children across the street to Dolores Park- there will be permission forms at the childcare registration table if you want to have your kids go to the park. Our planned ratio is 1 adult per every 4 children and childcare providers are from community childcare collectives. Please dress your kids warmly, there is 25% chance of rain and kids may be outside in the courtyard area. There will be art, activities and games for kids ages 1-8, older kids may hang out or help with activities for the younger kids.
I’m vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free/have other dietary restrictions. Will there be food accommodations?
We’re only providing light refreshments. It would be safest to bring your own snacks!
Is the space ADA accessible? Will you provide ASL interpretation?
The site is fully ADA accessible. There is an elevator by the front door to get inside and there are elevators to the classroom where the workshops are held. There are accessible bathrooms on each floor and we will have attendant support available if you tell us beforehand that you need it. See more info here: http://www.sfusd.edu/en/assets/sfusd-staff/schools-and-facilities/files/ada-access-guides/mission-high-ada-access-guide.pdf
We will also have limited parking spots available for those with ADA needs. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one of these parking spots.
We are happy to announce that we have secured ASL interpretation!
To make the space accessible for those with chemical sensitivities, we ask that you please arrive scent free. Please refrain from wearing perfume, scented lotion, etc.
I have a support dog/service animal. Can I bring them?
If you have a service animal that is necessary for you to participate, please feel free to bring them.
I’m have experience and can offer trainings. What’s the best way to get plugged in?
Thanks so much for being down! You can fill out the skills share Form here and and someone will be in touch with you for future training opportunities: https://bayresistance.org/take-action/contribute-your-skills/
Is the location public transit accessible? How do I get there? Is there parking at the school?
Mission High is very accessible by public transit, it’s right off of the J line or the 22 (MUNI) and five blocks away from the 16th Mission BART station.
There is street parking but it will be very difficult to find parking during a Saturday in the city. We encourage those who can take public transit do so to save time.
