Our Story

Sept 2020 Board of Supervisor meeting
Collage of several rallies

In Sept 2020, the Tehama Board of Supervisors were considering a covid penalty ordinance, which would allow for certain positions to cite and fine both businesses and individuals not complying with the state covid guidelines.

Shawn Greer learned about this the evening before the scheduled board meeting and created a public FB group to discuss this issue with friends who were having the same concerns. By morning, over 1,000 people had joined.

A large group attended the board meeting and many of us spoke. Our Supervisors heard us and tabled the ordinance.

We now have over 2,000 members. We continue to speak at various public agency meetings, we hold rally’s & protests, and we seek out ways to align with our fellow community members.
