#ProtectTheAltar

BIPOC Liberation Collective

The clock tower downtown has an altar to commemorate the Black lives that have been lost at the hands of police violence and white terrorism. The goal of the event we are planning is to protect the space by leading a vigil, getting the community to contribute to the altar and stop Parks & Rec from taking down the BLM Ofrenda/ Altar.

BIPOC Liberation Collective

The BIPOC Liberation Collective aims to build authentic, lasting, and intersectional solidarity among Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), in order to address anti-Blackness, undo Native invisibility, dismantle white supremacy and advance racial justice in Santa Cruz, CA and beyond. We use the term BIPOC to highlight the unique relationship to whiteness that Black and Indigenous people have within a U.S. context, while unapologetically focusing on and centering relationships among BIPOC folks here in Santa Cruz, CA.
