The Saturn Cafe is proud to announce three Community Night fundraisers this Wednesday, June 22nd. Come in anytime with a flier and Saturn will donate 10% of the profits from your meal to further missions of these important non-profits:
In Berkeley we are holding a benefit for Animal Place, an animal sanctuary providing permanent sanctuary, education, legislation and appropriate placement of needy animals.
In Santa Cruz we are holding benefits for the Homeless Garden Project and Gemma. The homeless Garden Project is a community garden providing job training and transitional employment to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Gemma is a non-profit program that supports women of Santa Cruz County to build a strong, stable, safe, and structured reentry back into the community after incarceration. They assist women to become empowered, productive, and independent members of the community.

Although California has adopted anti-bullying legislation, LGBT youth are still subject to harassment, intimidation and bullying. Seth’s Law will tighten anti-bullying policies in California schools by ensuring that all schools have clear and consistent policies, instituting better training and clearer guidelines for teachers and administrators, and establishing shorter timelines for investigating claims of bullying.

Satoshi Kanazawa just wrote an article called Why Are Black Women Rated Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women, But Black Men Are Rated Better Looking Than Other Men? The article, billed early on as racist hogwash, got so much negative attention when it was posted Sunday on Psychology Today that it had been taken down by Monday afternoon. (You can see screenshots of it at BuzzFeed.)
Please join us in demanding that psychology today apologize and make sure they don’t do anything like this again:

As is sadly the case each spring, many rabbit rescues are once again finding themselves up to their ears in post-Easter surrenders. To help increase education and awareness and find good homes for these cute cottontails, the House Rabbit Society and the Rabbit Haven are holding community night fundraisers with us in Berkeley and Santa Cruz this Wednesday, May 11.
Hop in at our locations in Santa Cruz or Berkeley for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with a flyer and 10% of the profits from your meal will be donated to The Rabbit Center and the Rabbit Haven. Proceeds from The Saturn in Berkeley will benefit the House Rabbit Society, while money raised at the Saturn Santa Cruz will help fund the efforts of the Rabbit Haven.

Bring your family and friends and let’s make this a great fundraiser for our bunnies.

Did you know California ranks near the bottom in education spending and performance, but we’re #1 in prison spending. DJJ (Division of Juvenile Justice) drains much-needed resources from California’s schools and the vital community programs that would help our State thrive. It’s time to close the expensive, abusive DJJ and redirect those resources into our schools. Click here to take action now and send a message to governor Jerry Brown telling him to close DJJ youth prisons, not schools.

TUPOCC is hosting a party and fundraiser in honor of May Day and in commemoration of what is known as International Workers Day. The event will feature musicians, performers, artists, and speakers on the theme of May Day, racial justice, immigration, and workers. There will be DJs, dancing, beer, and kombucha on tap.
Raffles for great prizes from local businesses and organizations throughout the night.
Suggested donation: $15 (please donate more if you can afford to, NOTAFLOF)
Proceeds from the event go to the United People of Color Caucus (TUPOCC). TUPOCC was founded in 2005 by a small group of diverse NLG law students of color. We are dedicated to fostering and supporting the growth and empowerment of all people of color, and particularly legal activists of color inside and outside of the NLG. We believe that an injury to one is an injury to all, and to this end, believe all forms of oppression need to be dismantled before any of us can reach true liberation. Since 2005, we’ve grown to hundreds of members.
The NLG was founded in 1937 as an association of progressive lawyers
created as an organization working in the service of the people and committed to the concept that human rights are more sacred than property interests.
