– BENICIA STANDING STRONG –
VIGIL ON THE SPRING EQUINOX
We continue on the 20th of each month to stand strong, watching over the Trump administration’s disastrous agenda. AND…it’s important to remain focused on local & regional issues. TOGETHER, we are strong.
March 20th falls this year on the spring equinox, a season of increasing light, and a time when life springs forth from death. We gather again to support one another in our efforts to resist the stifling of democracy and hope.
Bring information about groups you are working with.

|Among MANY other things…President Trump released his preliminary discretionary budget Thursday morning with its massive cuts to the arts, science, and the poor. The proposal cuts the EPA and the State Department the most — by nearly a third.
Trump would eliminate funding for 19 agencies, including the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Chemical Safety Board.
A few good local organizing links:
We must speak with all the humility that is appropriate to our limited vision, but we must speak. And we must rejoice as well, [at] the high grounds of a firm dissent based upon the mandates of conscience and the reading of history. Perhaps a new spirit is rising among us.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr., 1967
