Every day when I read the news, I get angry and upset. The last few weeks have been especially heartbreaking and infuriating.
What keeps me going is taking action. I'm motivated that people are using LA Forward to get involved for the first time beyond marching and donating money. (Both of which are super important!)
Join in as we gather on Sunday, July 22 to learn about the housing crisis and kickstart our campaign to Get Out The Vote for the November elections!
LA Forward Take Action Meeting — Housing & the November Elections
Sunday, July 22, 3:00 - 5:00 PM
Looking to get involved with LA's most pressing issues? Want to fight like hell to win some elections in November?
Join us for a meeting we'll focus on housing issues, with a deep dive into how the housing system works (and doesn't) and discuss one of this November's most important ballot initiatives — Prop 10 which would repeal the "Costa-Hawkins" restrictions that limit cities' abilities to enact strong rent control.
Then we'll further develop plans for voter registration, education, and mobilization and start phone-banking and meme-making to make it happen.
NEW MONTHLY MEETING SCHEDULE
We're re-starting our monthly meetings with a new format. To keep it easy to remember and put on your calendar in advance, they will always be every Second Sunday of the month from 3:00 to 5:00 PM.
August 12, September 9, October 14, November 11, December 9, etc. You get the idea.
