Volunteers from the Inland Empire chapter of Democratic Socialists of America will be hosting a clinic to replace broken brake lights for area residents free of charge, with open participation for all parties involved. This public service event aims to prevent unnecessary police stops, expensive tickets and fines, and possible court appearances, to benefit the greater community. Similar clinics have been held by numerous DSA chapters throughout the country and are a proven and successful model of locally-driven mutual aid.
Incidents over the past decade, such as the police shooting of Philando Castile, have demonstrated the often deadly consequences of escalation resulting from minor and routine stops by law enforcement. By reducing the overall number of such encounters, the Inland Empire DSA hopes to contribute positively and in a material way toward remediation of a national controversy over law enforcement impacts on vulnerable populations, and as a small step toward its vision of a more just, humane, and free society.
The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. Through campus and community-based chapters, DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.
