The DSBay Brake Light Coalition brings together five Bay Area DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) chapters and organizing committees. We are partnering with South Bay Progressive Alliance and Serve the People San José for this event.
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.
