D. O. A. A.P. B. A. T. C. O. A.G.

Days of Action Against Police Brutality and the Criminalization of Youth for the acronym impaired like myself. October 22nd and 23rd every year we put on an action to stand in solidarity with thousands of groups around the nation and the world. October 22nd is the national Day of Action, we add the 23rd in remembrance of Chris Burgess a young man criminalized by the system at age 10 and murdered by the police just a few short years later on October 23rd. With the help of many dedicated volunteers we held an action lasting 36 hours, serving hundreds of meals, covering almost every neighborhood in Eureka at one point in time. We had a live concert in Carson park as we dined on wonderful vegan vittles by candle light under the grape arbor.
