Bay Area Student Activists

$5,731 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 102 people in 12 months
High school students from all over the Bay Area are planning a trip to Sacramento on April 19th. We have resources to bring with us and we want to talk to our Congress about enforcing stricter gun control laws. We are ALL tired of politicians sending their "thoughts and prayers" and, following the Parkland students, we will be taking our stories and requests straight to the people in charge. We have 10+ private and public schools involved and are excited to sit down and talk. But, we can't get there without YOUR help. We need to pay for our transportation costs (buses) and are asking YOU to help us! Please donate anything you can! Everything and anything helps ($1-$100 or more)! Spread the word, we won't be able to spread our message without help!

Trissa Baden is graciously accepting all your donations so that we can use them to pay for a variety of things (printing, stickers, odds and ends, etc). She is the mother of Ruby (co-founder and lead organizer) and we are making sure to keep our receipts all very, very clear. Thank you all!

Hey Bay Area Friends,

This October, Bay Area Student Activists is holding a Voter Information Forum at the Berkeley Community Theater. The event is geared towards any first time voters, voters who don't have endless time to sift through politicians platforms, and anyone else who's interested in learning more about our midterms.

We'll start with local organizations with tables, handing out information about the issues they care about. If you are a part of a local organization, please private message me and you can have your own table! Tables can range from political to social to justice issues.

Then, we are hosting a two-hour forum with many candidates for our upcoming midterms. We are currently in contact with a multitude of local candidates, from Board of Education to Assemblymembers, who are planning to come speak.

Please share this along to help encourage East Bay voters to come out and learn more about their candidates!

A HUGE thank you to all our donors! We had a wonderful day in Sacramento yesterday with 40+ meetings with legislators and their staffers. It was such an inspiring experience and we could not have done it without you!

Hey all!! We want to thank you all SO much for your generous donations! We are currently in the midst of paying for and reserving buses (woohooo exciting!). We are fortunate enough to have been awarded an $8,000 grant from the Urgent Action Fund that will cover the majority of our bus costs (more excite). The total bus costs are around $10,200, so with the grant and your amazing donations we have plenty! The remaining money from the GoFundMe will go to printing costs (for our lobby advocacy packets, informational flyers, bus permission slips, etc), merchandise to look uniform, and future plans!
Thank you all for your donations! Please continue to donating to help support BAStA in future endeavors!!!
