BRING pillows, blankets, Star Wars action figures, and snacks to share. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project.

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up in the fields and industrial wastelands.  Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment.

BREAKING NEWS, updated summer schedule, discussion,  do-it-yourself, email list, the works at

GDI Community Brainstorm

During the intermission for Minority Report, we had a brainstorm on
alternatives to police and law enforcement for solving community
problems. This is the list that came out of this discussion.

Possible Community Solutions to Challenging Behaviors

* Person assigned to be present with person having hard time
* Direct communication / dialog
* Don't call police / no punitive solutions
* Communicate with neighbors
* Mutual support
* Provide solutions / skills / education
* Crisis response team (Anarchist 911)
* Support positive youth culture / youth spaces
* Dialog with gangs / groups / neighbors
* Free enrichment activities - recreation, sports
* Mental health support
* Writing/art programs
* Free skools / sharing skills & education
* Communities of parents, groups, youth

Now this is just a brainstorm of course, and still all just talk. But
we have the opportunity to create in our lives through our actions and
projects the kind of world we want to see.
