Sanitation for the People is a mutual aid group working for sanitation and waste management services for all. We clean up and we work on system change, so that people living without houses get basic services. We work from a non-judgemental, harm reduction ethos. We currently do regular sessions every other Sunday morning 10:30-noon, as well as special sessions with the city and/or other community groups. Please contact us via email or social media to get involved.
Good News Santa Cruz is a show hosted by a collective of women inspired by the peace and social justice mission of WILPF (Women's International League for Peace and Freedom). There's 104 years of history behind this show–years of women crossing many nations and facing all kinds of odds to make a world that works better for us all. And this work is still going on, as powerful as ever. Our show brings that story home, here and now, in Santa Cruz, and in real time. We air interviews with local people who are finding real ways out of the mess we're in – with stories, ideas, successes and strategies connecting across issues to achieve systems change. Team Members include: Randa Solick – Educator and Social Justice Activist; Pauline Seales – Educator and climate activist; Nancy Glock-Grueneich – Educator and systems change visionary; Debora Bone – Medical Professional and Social Justice Activist; Christine Barrington – Therapist and Societal Transformation Activist; David Sweet – WILPF member, Retired History Professor and Social Justice Activist; Keisha Frost – CEO, United Way Santa Cruz County.
