Note about brake light fix clinics in the Bay Area:
Based on the amazing work started by the New Orleans DSA chapter, Bay Area chapters have come together to form the DSBay coalition to organize a series brake light fix clinics around the Bay. At these clinics, mechanics and trained DSA volunteers work together to change burned out brake lights for free and engage in meaningful discussion with community members. Our goal is to provide this 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 with the consequences of a simple traffic stop resulting in financial ruin, arrest, and even death.
We held our first clinic on November 18th in East Oakland and fixed 33 brake lights (as well as some other minor repairs)! We were met with a positive response from the East Oakland community and are looking forward to bringing this event to other cities in our area. The next DSBay brake light event will be held in the South Bay and our chapter membership will be the lead organizers for this event!
