-Friday Sept. 30: A Show!!!

-Tuesday Oct. 4th: Sustainable Cycles: Bicycle Down the West Coast, Meet Women, Talk about Menstrual Cups, and Live on $4 a Day- 6-9pm

**Two years ago, after graduating from college, Toni and Sarah met at a dance festival in North Carolina and decided to ride bicycles from Albany, NY to Ann Arbor, MI— for the adventure, to see some world, to make connections to people, and to see where we got to without any plans.

So recently we had this idea… to go on another bike trip, with more of a purpose: to bike down the West coast and talk to women that we meet along the way, make woman-to-woman connections and convince them to switch to using a menstrual cup. One-at-a-time spread this information to women who otherwise might never have access to learning about non-disposable menstrual options. It seems to me that the number one way this revolution grows is through personal testimony of friends-to-friends.

-Wednesday Oct. 5th: Two happenings

**HUFF meeting 10:30am- HUFF is Santa Cruz's oldest and most stubbornly persistent grassroots homeless advocacy group. We make trouble for the powers that be and fight institutional human rights abuses such as the "blanket ban": a Santa Cruz City Council law prohibiting homeless mothers and children from covering up with a blanket between the hours of 11 p.m. and 8:30 a.m.

**FoxFire: a feminist discussion group! 6:30--10pm We will be reading a zine. Please join us for reading and discussion of the text. Feel free to bring snacks and such. **This reading group is limited to those folks who identify as women, trans and/or fem.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
