COVID 19 Resources

Our reality is rapidly changing and with it comes updates to policies and protocols on local, state, and national levels. The movement is rising to the moment and demanding provision of safe shelter, health care for all, decarceration, protections for emergency workers, and an end to deportation and sanctions. We demand collective care and welfare NOT militarization and repression. The NLG-SF has important work to do to defend those organizing for these demands.
