    OUT OF THE BROOM CLOSET is a reading/discussion/practice group that engages at the intersection of magic, spirit & politics...that is open to anyone with curiosity and respect, who can get down with its basic frame work. The intention of this group meet regularly with community, share ideas, learn and practice together at the intersection of politics and magic in order to build capacity, intimacy and a framework for other branches of collaboration to be created and supported.

And the SubRosa fundraiser is still ongoing!

(and money is processed through a secure WePay account).

We appreciate any support you can offer to this anarchist community space...large and all helps!  We barely scrape by each month and feel further energized for SubRosa to be an active and supportive presence in Santa Cruz, especially in these trying times. And Thanks!

Note:  You can choose how regularly you contribute to SubRosa and the default on the website is weekly.  This can be changed to other time frames as well.  Also, the Action Network, which hosts the fundraiser requests a "tip" and this can also be adjusted from the default of 10% to "no tip" or even more.

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.
