Independent California is a non-profit dedicated to moving California in a more democratic, more independent direction.
- Independent California was established in 2018 and has made its presence known by being active on the ground.
- This group of activists have been known to go as far as protest the ICE director’s residence causing them to relocate! The creative techniques employed by this group is a testament to human creativity and passion. An example would be the use of hired mariachi performers to play at that ICE directors’ residence.
- If you are looking to join a group who will be on the streets, in the face of the opposition, this group is for you! Independent California provides those activists who want to get their hands dirty at the street level a great outlet to do such.
- Independent California’s executive is a man who has made a name for himself within the movement with his fearless approach towards activism, his name is Shankar Singam. If the name sounds familiar to you it may be because Shankar has appeared on national television programming during the prime-time slot, he has even gone as far as to debate Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
- If you are fearless, passionate, and feel that activism is best performed at the street level, this is your group.
