We hope these answers help you understand our specific goals and actions more clearly, ultimately leading to your desire to join us in our efforts to maintain sanity, safety and progression in our government and nation.
How old is SOMA Action?
Brand new! Here is your chance to get in early and help guide an organization in a way that includes your ideas and input. Two similar groups in the SOMA area formed immediately following the presidential election in November of 2016 and on Sunday, January 15th those groups merged to have their first meeting as SOMA Action.
What are your specific goals and areas of focus?
We are in the process of forming committees in the following areas:
- Racial Injustice and Immigration Rights
- Media and Communications
- State and Local Electoral Politics
- Environmental Issues
- Health Care
- Women’s Rights and LGBTQ Rights
- Voter Suppression and Electoral Reform
- Foreign Policy and War
In addition, we also have an Admin/Tech committee for logistical purposes.
Who can join SOMA Action?
We welcome anyone who wants to roll up their sleeves and join us in the hard work it will take to resist and defy new norms that damage our country, fellow humans and the planet. If you want to join more as a sign of moral support, we welcome you too! Inclusion is cool.
