There could not be a better (or worse) parody of Santa Cruz then what I witnessed last week while dropping my kids off at school:
With climate change, fires, drought, a global pandemic and Republican-led voter suppression closing in, a white man with a clipboard stands outside a Santa Cruz elementary school explaining to a group of white parents that the South county Latino population won’t use the trains in the future, and that we need to stop trains from coming to Santa Cruz County.
Isn’t there something more important to fight for in these hard times than trying to stop a train?
