Our work:

The DSBay Brake Light Coalition brings together five Bay Area DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) chapters and organizing committees. Our goal is to provide a direct service to neighbors threatened by fines and other state violence and help to limit interactions between our communities and the police. Traffic stops are often used as a pretext for police to search or detain people. A simple traffic stop can result in financial ruin, arrest, and even death.
