Call to Action: Voter Outreach and Education Launch, Sat. 3/10/18, 9am
Please join DHF and Faith in the Valley Kern this Saturday for the Schools and Communities First Voter Outreach and Education Launch!
WHEN: Saturday, March 10, 2018
Training at 9:00 am
WHERE: Brower Building, 1527 19th Street, Bakersfield, CA 93301, 2nd Floor Conference Room
In an effort to register all eligible voters and increase voter turnout in the November elections we plan to train volunteers to talk to thousands of low propensity voters through door to door canvassing in CD 21 and Bakersfield City School District 3.
We want to educate voters about the BCSD 3 special election on April 10th and inform the community of a BCSD 3 Special Election Candidate Forum on March 15, 2018.
In addition, The Schools and Communities First coalition, led by Advancement Project California, California Calls, Common Sense Kids Action, Evolve California, League of Women Voters of California, and PICO California, will begin their signature gathering campaign in Bakersfield. With launches across the state, the coalition plans to recruit and train volunteers to collect the 584,407 signatures needed to place the California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act on the November ballot. The Act would close Proposition 13’s corporate property tax loophole, which deprives Californians of over $11 billion in revenue every year.
