North Bay Organizing Project

On Sunday, October 23, from 3pm-5pm., the North Bay Organizing Project will hold it’s first-ever Public Meeting at the Santa Rosa High School Auditorium. At this meeting, more than 700 people will come together to demonstrate their collective power, celebrate accomplishments, and continue to advance action in current campaigns on issues including the local law enforcement accepting Mexican Government issued Matricular IDs and the prioritization by city and county officials and other stakeholders supporting the building of the “Community Connector” Bicycle Pedestrian Bridge over Hwy 101. 

These specific issues were targeted at NBOP’s issues assembly in February and advanced by the Immigration Task Force and the Transit Equity/Neighborhood Development Task Force. Public officials responsible for each of these issues that impact the people of Sonoma County will attend and respond to our specific strategies that will address each of these issues.

The North Bay Organizing Project is a diverse, multi-issue organization that believes that the participation of its members in the community is essential to keeping democracy alive. The North Organizing Project is a rapidly growing organization that unifies other organizations that hold similar values based in social justice, democratic capacity building, and leadership development. Member groups of this organization include The Living Wage Coalition, LandPaths' Bayer Farm, The Graton Day Labor Center/Centro Laboral de Graton, Padres Organizado por Derechos, Educacion y Respeto – PODER, Redwood Forest Friends Meeting, Unite Here 2850, Roseland Educators of Adult Learners – REAL, Committee for  Immigrant Rights Sonoma County, Sonoma County Conservation Action, Move On Sonoma County Chapter, MEChA SSU and SRJC, Latino Democratic Club, The North Bay Central Labor Council, KBBF, Bi-lingual Radio and Community Action Partnership.
