DSA Statewide Campaign Kickoff for Prop 15 (Schools and Communities First)
Thursday, August 6, 7:30pm to 8:30pm

This November, Californians will be voting to reclaim an estimated $12 Billion dollars annually for our schools and communities via a tax on large corporations. Our chapter endorsed Prop 15 at our last meeting and will be organizing around it in the coming months. This digital rally, held by a statewide DSA formation leading our organizing efforts, will be a great way to learn how to get involved in the campaign. Hope to see you there!

Please RSVP for the August 6 statewide call here
