New Programming Collective to Facilitate Events and Actions

A new Santa Cruz Programming Collective is an organized group of people that are committed to booking events and laying the groundwork for a whole new era in the Santa Cruz independent music & activism scene. We can promote education, awareness and political action through our events, and shake up widespread apathy and passivity. The collective will make booking successful shows more fun and easier when we work together, and make this activity accessible to anyone - encouraging people to do it themselves! We feel a resource like this is just what Santa Cruz needs. For now, meetings will be Thursdays, 7:00pm at the Wired Wash Cafe.

Citizen's Police Review Board Gets Dismantled

The CPRB was always a weak fig leaf, but in the last year it had begun investigations, which might have generated public support for a stronger model. With no CPRB, it’s even more important to watch and report incidents of police misconduct publicly, if they happen to you directly, if you see them (such as illegal checkpoints), or if you hear about them. Please document Santa Cruz Police Department behavior and publish words, photography, audio, and video on SC-IMC.
