Let’s get organized! Next BACC Orientation: Feb 18th from 2:00-4:00

Feeling the need to throw yourself into organizing to fend off fear and despair? So are we! Come play with kids with us and feed your soul while supporting the leadership of black, brown, & undocumented mothers in the struggle for liberation. Let’s get organized and get ready.

BACC volunteers provide free childcare for grassroots organizations in the struggle for liberation. We see childcare as a form of activism and recognize mothers and caretakers as vital leaders of every movement.

Our orientations are a two-hour crash course covering 1) why we do what we do / the need for childcare & family-centered movement spaces, 2) childcare practice 101, 3) how BACC works logistically.

Long-term partners include Causa Justa :: Just Cause, LeftRoots (Bay Area Chapter), and La Colectiva de Mujeres in SF. Lately we’ve also worked with Black Teacher Project in Oakland, SRO Families Collaborative in SF, ROC Restaurant Opportunities Center, and the Stop the Santa Rita Jail Expansion Collaborative. We work with any group that is 1) grassroots, 2) primarily led by & composed by low-income women, women of color, or immigrant women or QTPOC families, and 3) fighting for more than reform — as our capacity allows.
