Update on Bake for Bonds

Bake for Bonds, now completing its third and final weekend, raised $8,200 as of Saturday, September 1st.  Organizers set a goal of $10,000 for funds to help immigrants transferred from West County Detention Center to private prisons out of state.  With a strong supportive community, organizers predict success at the end of Sunday.  Please join the campaign and buy some baked goods for a good cause. Find Bake for Bonds at Trader Joes in El Cerrito Plaza and Kensington Farmers Market from 10Am to 2PM. day1bakesale

Bake for Bonds launches the first weekend of bake sales – almost $500 raised in 4 hours.  Day 2 promises to be even greater – more sites and a 1-1 match for every dollar raised!

When El Cerrito Progressives launched a local effort to support the coalition of organizations raising funds for a Bay Area bond fund to support local ICE detainees, the outpouring of support heartened us all.  In addition to raising $3,000 within the first 10 days, a local neighbor donated funds and  suggested a city wide bake sale.  With a quick Canva graphic, catchy title and a bit of social media, neighbors came together to launch three weekends of scrumptious treats to be sold at some well traversed spots in our city. Don’t miss your chance to support a good cause.

  1. Greetings, Would your group be interested in writing postcards into CD10 to support Josh Harder? Many people are not up for canvassing, and this is another option that helps us flip a district to win the house, and put a serious roadblock in Trump’s path. Our goal is to write 5,000 cards. I have commitments for 2,000, and you are just the 3rd group I’m asking. Thanks for all the work you do. Billy
