Urgent-Stop Vaccine Mandate in San Jose for Private Businesses

Click here to sign up for Sept 20th Strategy Meeting — 6:00-7:00 PM

On August 24th, the San Jose City Council voted unanimously to require proof of vaccination to attend any gathering of 50 or more people in a city-owned facility (i.e., SAP Arena, Convention Center, Center of Performing Arts).

Now the San Jose City Council is coming after PRIVATE businesses!


In Mayor Liccardo’s Memorandum to the City Council dated August 18th, (1) he first proposes to require PROOF of vaccinations to enter city-owned facilities and then to (2) consider requiring PROOF of vaccination for indoor dining, theaters, gyms and other PRIVATELY-OWNED facilities.

If this vaccine mandate passes, it means that SVARW cannot meet at THREE FLAMES.

It a FREE country, the owner of a business has the right to determine who they should allow into their business and who they should exclude.  This is not about whether people should be vaccinated or not.  This is about GOVERNMENT overreach.

Don’t live in San Jose?  If this vaccine mandate passes in San Jose, it is only a matter of a short time when it will be adopted by other municipalities.

September 22nd SVARW Meeting –CRT: Critical Race Theory or Crazy Radical Tantrums?

CRT: Critical Race Theory or Crazy Radical Tantrums?

Do We Fund Schools or Indoctrination Camps?

There’s a culture war afoot, and the citizenry is fighting back. First, we have the woke craze and Critical Race Theory that dominates the news these days. Fortunately, there’s a rising resistance among parents and concerned citizens on that front.

And then there is the math craziness. 2+2=4. Period. But now that the crazies are in charge, if you insist on right and wrong answers, you are racist. Really. But until recently, the proposed California math framework recommended dropping high school calculus and other challenging classes to further “equity”. Fortunately, with enough citizen outrage, the state walked back some of its new math mandates, notably dropping the over-the-top “equitable” math mandates. But the war is not over.  The framework has not been finalized, and the California Dept. of Education will hold a second public review in June and July.

Also, in May California decided to eliminate the SAT and ACT, traditional tests used as an admission requirement for students to gain entry into the University of California. The ban, through at least 2025, was clearly instituted because Blacks and Hispanics did not benefit from these objective tests. But some maintain the change clearly discriminates against Whites and Asians (including low-income ones) who have or will score well on the test. This is obvious grounds for a lawsuit, though none has been filed to date.

We can’t sit idly by and watch the future of our students be destroyed this way. A recent poll reveals that 94 percent of respondents aren’t in favor of white privilege training. To combat this woke onslaught, the citizenry cannot stand idly by. Action is necessary – write letters, talk to your neighbors, join a group, institute a lawsuit – whatever it takes to derail the woke train. But we need information and guidance first. Join us to hear what resources are available to us to push back on this woke onslaught!

Wanted Candidates to Run for School Board Informational Meeting

Invitation to Informational Meeting

Stop Marxist Indoctrination of Our Children

Ethnic studies, when taught constructively, can build empathy and understanding while combating racism. Unfortunately, much of ethnic studies that are being taught in our schools is based on Critical Ethnic Studies, which pits students against each other by defining them as victims or oppressors based on the color of their skin.

The California Legislature is close to passing AB 101, which would mandate teaching ethnic studies as a graduation requirement.  School districts in Santa Clara County are not wasting anytime in pushing Critical Race Theory throughout all grade levels.  As written, the bill does not include specific content but leaves the option of curriculum to each school district.

Conservative school board trustees can work with parent groups to demand a modified curriculum in their local districts.

Please consider running for school board!

SVARW and SVGOP are hosting an informational meeting so concerned people like you can find out more about running for school board.  We also are encouraging those who would like to help good candidates get elected to school boards to attend as well.

We will cover basic information including:

  • Requirements to run for office.
  • Opportunities open to you for the November 2022 election.
  • Process for getting your name on the ballot.
  • Timeline for running for office.
  • What you should be doing now in preparation to run for office
  • Next steps if you choose to run

Current school board trustees will share their experiences about what the position entails and about their campaigns for school board.

Board and Commission Opportunities in Santa Clara County—Apply Now!

Board and Commission Opportunities in Santa Clara County—Apply Now!

Looking at the challenges inflicted on our lives by “the government”, our first reaction might be “I need to run for office”.  It is a noble desire to want to impact the government, but running for office and getting elected are two different things.  There is a much swifter route to impact your local community and that is to be appointed to a city or county Board or Commission.

Each of the 15 municipalities in Santa Clara County as well as the county government, have opportunities for citizen to serve in both advisory and decision making positions.  Being appointed and serving on a Board or Commission is a great way to understand how the local government works, the issues faced and it looks great on your resume if you do decide to run for office.

Unlike running for an office, vacancies in these positions happen at various times and you need to apply when there are openings.  Qualifications vary by position from just being a resident of the city/town to fulfilling other qualifications.

Go to the Boards and Commissions tab on the www.SVARW.com website and check out the opportunities in your city and Santa Clara County.  Contact Jan Soule at jansoule@svarw.com if you are interested in more information.  Remember…if you don’t have a seat in local government…a liberal will have it!
