August Events From the Ocean Beach Green Center

Ocean Beach Green Center, 4862 Voltaire Street, Ocean Beach 92107 

Dear Friends of the Ocean Beach Green Center

In the last year we have periodically talked about our friend and mentor, Jim Bell, who graciously provided a new home for the Ocean Beach Green Center. Jim peacefully passed away this morning at his home.  We had a party for him at his home and the Green Center's home several weeks ago. 

For those of you who didn't know Jim, he was a great visionary and a dedicated environmentalist who had been talking about sustainability for over 40 years. You can check out his work at

We, at the Green Center, will try to continue his legacy by supporting and promoting his vision of making the San Diego/ Tijuana bioregion energy, water and food self-sufficient.

 A big thanks goes to Dustin, Jim's friend, who got Jim home and saved his house from development. Thank you also for all the wonderful caregivers Jim had, especially Laura.  We will have another celebration of his life in a couple of weeks.  If you would like to be notified please email us at

They do it all while abiding by two simple rules of the road: 1) No Interstates: They can only travel on secondary highways and country roads 2) They can only do business with Mom & Pop. No McDonalds, No Best Westerns. No Wal-Marts. The documentary feature uncovers the growing discontent with big box, corporate America. The filmmakers capture pockets of resistance across the country, which adds up to a nationwide opposition.

Thank you for 20 Years of Activism:  We need you to ensure we grow for another 20 yrs!
Activist San Diego is celebrating its 20th year of social justice action and mobilization.  ASD was mobilizing 18 year before the Trump "election" so we called for a demonstration the day afterward, as we had done when GW Bush got "selected".  ASD was there with you to co-found the San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice the day after 911; SDCPJ led the peace demonstrations.  ASD was involved in youth organizing, in immigrant rights actions, in media justice by establishing KNSJ as a voice for progressive news and views and in establishing an Activist Center as a networker & resource for other non-profits.  ASD has been involved in issues of police brutality since 1999 and helped initiate the
Racial Justice Coalition in 2017-18.   

OUR VISION & YOUR HELP! We are seeking to be an organization led by peoples of color, with strong women's leadership; an org which is multi-generational and gender diverse. We want to be builders of unity and left-progressive coalitions.  Join as a member and please give a sustaining contribution  Please take 2 minutes and Give NOW! so that ASD & KNSJ can be around for another 20 years and beyond.  

Activist Board of Directors elects by its Board members. Come check us out.

KNSJ is the only station bringing consistently progressive news, information & more local music

Your donation supports...

KNSJ 89.1 fm is just 5 1/2 years old, but we have broken new ground.  What you hear on KNSJ has never been heard on the San Diego airwaves. Without the deeper analysis and challenging perspectives, we can not expect a community to participate in shaping its destiny. KNSJ is young, yearning to become an agent of transformative information and communications.
Our syndicated programs not only tell national and international stories, we are striving to inspire local action and involvement. What other station has a local women's show, a masterfully-produced political humor show, a Vets show, several environmental shows, labor shows, a live Native American talk show, plus Democracy Now with Amy Goodman, Thom Hartman, Ralph Nader and local icon Mike Aguirre?
This year we have been adding a new locally-produced music show every month. We have just begun our quest for indispensable information in San Diego.  We need your help to blossom.  Please, Please, donate now. Your support can help transform San Diego.

At the mic Activist San Diego's President, Buki Domingos and at the Podium MC Mohamed Abdallah lead the crowd at the Immigration March and Impeachment March in front of the City and County Building. These were just a few of the rallies in which ASD helped bring the community together to resist the administration's efforts to stir up racism and prejudice.
Join the Racial Justice Coalition of SD.  Meeting alternate Sundays at various locations across the city. for more information call 626-425-7353
