Community rally in support of November ballot initiatives for SF public schools

This Friday, on the last day of summer classes at City College, community members will be participating in an interactive public art activity and sidewalk chalk project to educate voters about two November ballot initiatives that would increase funding for public schools.

“Free City College” will make tuition free for all SF residents through a tax on mansions, bringing in $13 million annually. Prop 55 will keep taxing the wealthiest 2 percent of Californians, bringing in $4 billion dollars per year for our public education system.

Speakers will be addressing the affordability crisis in San Francisco and the urgency for voters to tackle the growing income gap by taxing the wealthiest to pay their fair share.

On Friday, July 22, from 12-1:30 p.m., at City College Chinatown campus at 808 Kearny Street.
