About the Organizations

Originally formed to support Occupy Oakland actions, the Bay Area Anti-Repression Committee (ARC) stands against political repression and is in solidarity with all those who challenge the state, capitalism and other forms of systemic oppression and domination. ARC provides support for actions that are anti-patriarchal, anti-racist, anti-imperialist & anti-capitalist. Their support work comes primarily in the form of education, information and referrals. They also manage an anti-repression bail fund for those that do not have the resources to bail or bond themselves. ARC is a first resort for education and information on solidarity and a last resort for financial support. To donate to the ARC bail fund visit: https://rally.org/arcbailfund.

SF Neighbors Solidarity Network delivers free groceries and Covid PPE to our elders and vulnerable neighbors throughout San Francisco every week. A volunteer-run organization, they have to date distributed over $30K worth of groceries to 80 households throughout the city in neighborhoods including: Richmond, Sunset, Park Merced, North Beach, Tenderloin, Chinatown, South of Market, Mission, Potrero Hill, Excelsior, and Fillmore/Western Addition. Their support extends to providing resources for elderly residents facing housing issues and helping individuals sign up for benefits. To request a bag or to recommend someone to receive a bag, the group has a voicemail service at (415) 347-1460 or email sfneighborssolidaritynetwork@gmail.com. Anyone can request groceries, no questions asked.
