It is a cruel irony that many students are eligible to vote and will live with the November 2020 election results for longer than most of us, yet are not likely to vote. To help address this, we’re hosting community organizers and local officials for a discussion on one of today’s more relevant topics: voting for justice. All are welcome!
Please invite students to join us (and you too) on October 13, 2020, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m., for Cast Your Vote: Own Your Power, a virtual discussion on ballot measures that address injustice rooted in economic inequality. Register here. We respectfully ask you to offer extra credit or to make the event an assignment. In return, we promise relevant learning, engaging discussion, and social solidarity many of us are craving.

- 4:35 – Discussion on Proposition 15 with the California Federation of Teachers, followed by Q&A

Students will have the opportunity to ask and vote on questions throughout the event. The session will be recorded so attendees, students, and others will have access to the event later.
