Sick of skyrocketing health insurance premiums and rents? Want to fight back against privatization and defunding of our public schools and make sure that no one has to go into massive debt to go to college? Want to end fracking in our state and make oil companies and the rich pay for a California that serves the many, not the few?
Join East Bay Democratic Socialists of America as we campaign to elect two democratic socialists, Gayle McLaughlin for California Lieutenant Governor and Jovanka Beckles for Assembly District 15 (from North Oakland into Contra Costa County).
Because they take no money from landlords, businesses, or corporate PACs and are up against a slew of Democrats who do, the only way that Gayle and Jovanka can win, and the only way we will be able to spread their message far and wide, is if all of us pitch in.
We need YOU to help make this campaign a success.
Haven't canvassed before? No worries! You'll get matched up with an experienced campaigner, meet lovely people, and make a difference!
If you plan to come, you can RSVP or just turn up on the day.
Read more about the candidates' platforms.
The California primaries are June 5!
Both Gayle and Jovanka are battle tested fighters for working people's interests in Richmond: as leaders of the Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA) they beat back Chevron's millions to win back their city, won the first new rent control measure in California, reformed the police to institute community policing, and much more.
Neither candidates take any corporate donations, and they are helping to build the political revolution across California by helping organize progressive groups and unions around issues like universal rent control, single payer healthcare, free higher education, fully funded public K-12 schools, an end to mass incarceration, and environmental justice.
Can't make it? We're canvassing throughout the rest of the month!
