The Left Bank gathers people who share a love for wilderness, music and progressive thought. We organize a variety of activities such as hiking and camping in Southern California, acoustic music jams, drum circles, coffee breaks (somewhat reminiscent of "Rive Gauche" café life in Paris), movies, concerts, parties, political and environmental activism, therapy exchange, workshops and lectures.  The Left Bank is a refuge for grassroots progressives, liberals, socialists, anarchists and environmentalists from Southern California and beyond who wish to enjoy nature, celebrate life, expand peace, and engage themselves in social justice activism, locally and globally.  We are also a registered student association at California State University Fullerton. Our "World Workshops" series gathers faculty, students, artists, speakers and community members to discuss contemporary global issues. We also join other like-minded events in the area.  Membership and events are FREE and FUN!
