Resources for those seeking & those offering support & general info re: CZU Fire in Santa Cruz County

Resources - for those seeking & those offering 
support & general info re: CZU Fire in Santa Cruz County

This is an intense time (I write as one who is evacuated and unsure what the future holds for my beloved home I share with dear friends) and something that I do want to acknowledge and celebrate is how so many people have come together during this challenging time to support one another.  When the smoke clears (ah, the cliche feels literal) may we continue to prioritize caring for each other and harvest the lessons from this time for more fundamental changes for how we live our lives.

We strive to create a vibrant environment for events, classes, meetings, organizing, performance, art, studying and more. SubRosa also offers radical literature for sale, and houses the Anarchist Lending Library.

SubRosa is part of the Hub Community Center, in downtown Santa Cruz, CA which is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe.

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.
