Schools & Communities First - Yes on 15

We are joining militant educators all across the state such as United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA), and our beloved Oakland Educators Association (OEA) to support the California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2020. This act would raise $11 billion for the state of California by reforming Proposition 13 (1978) and raising taxes on certain business properties. Of this, $4.5 billion will go to California schools, and the rest will go to local governments.
