DSA SF’s Justice Committee held its second Brakelight Replacement Clinic of the year on June 8, 2019, at the San Francisco Christian School, located in the Outer Mission. Members of the committee and other volunteers replaced neighbors’ brakelights, free of charge, and conversed with neighbors about socialism. Earlier this year, the Justice Committee held the clinic in the Bayview.
Originally founded by New Orleans DSA in 2017, the Brakelight Replacement Clinic is a practical way of pushing back against the over-policing of communities of color by taking steps to minimize chance encounters between civilians and police. It’s also a great way to meet our neighbors. During San Francisco’s Bayview and Outer Mission clinics, our hardworking volunteers spoke to dozens of neighbors and replaced over 50 brakelights.
This event is a great opportunity for volunteers of all levels of experience, whether they know how to change a brakelight or not.
