Sign up to receive updates on actions and meetings around San Leandro
The National organization was built from the historic Bernie Sanders campaign.
San Leandro for Bernie was formed in July 2015, when Bernie hosted a live-stream rally and thousands of house parties met across the country.
Two of those parties were in San Leandro and held by current members Carol and Maureen, with Jeromey stopping by both parties to meet us and
bring us some bumper stickers and Bernie pins.
San Leandro for Bernie was born from this meeting with our members campaigning in Nevada, Iowa, and locally.
We held debate parties, tabled at Farmer’s Markets, and canvassed and phone banked our community.
We found a connection with like-minded people, and are building a community of progressives that cares about our community, our state, our country, and our world.
We invite you to work with us on issues that are important to you, and find community, friendship and meaning that comes with working together with the goal of creating a safe, just community here in San Leandro and beyond.
We welcome and want to connect with other organizations and build a large progressive voice here in our town.
In the words of the late singer/activist Jon Fromer:
“Gonna take us all to make a change
Take us all to win the peace
It’s gonna take us all in the streets
Gonna take us all…”
