The California Initiative (S.F.) was founded by NightBug and Rock N Roll in August, 2011.
We are a group working to actively fight and deter crime, help the needy, and make the SF Bay Area a safer and better place.

We help others wherever and however we can.july-hope-sf

Objectives

* Humanitarian Outreach
* Neighborhood Crime Watch
* Urban Exploration
* Empowerment and Awareness Outreach
* Specific Operations
* Law Enforcement Support
* Environmental Outreach
* Community Emergency Response

Goals

* Create a region in which everyone’s basic survival needs of food, shelter, physical safety, health, environmental safety, and community involvement are met.
* Challenge individuals and institutions that create harm in our communities and region by perpetuating poverty, gender violence, environmental disasters, and other forms of environmental and social injustice.
* Create and support community organizations and programs that empower individuals and communities to flourish by embracing the principles of environmental sustainability and social justice.
* Develop the knowledge, skills, character, and relationships necessary to live a good life in community with our fellow people and the land we call home.

Strategy

* Organize a small group of individuals to brainstorm, develop, and implement programs that serve our goals.
* Support other individuals, groups, and programs with similar goals.
* Educate, motivate, organize, and inspire others in the communities in our region to do the same.

Tactics

* Identify the most pressing needs facing the region.
* Organize and/or participate in food/clothing drives, food/clothing distribution, fundraisers, used needle pickup patrols and other events that gather and mobilize resources to meet basic survival needs that are currently going unmet.
* Organize and/or participate in various forms of training that will empower us to better serve our communities.
* Organize street patrols. Our street patrols will serve the threefold goals of neighborhood watch, distribution of resources to those in need, and outreach about environmental and social justice efforts.
