More than 60 educators from the Sacramento Unified School District took to their cell phones Thursday night to reach out to voters in support on two key issues of vital importance to schools and to working women and men. The educators called voters to urge them to support Proposition 30, the governor’s revenue measure that will prevent $6 billion in additional cuts to public schools and will begin providing billions of new dollars to support educational excellence.
At the same time, the educators urged voters to stand with teachers, firefighters, nurses, and other organized workers against Proposition 32, the deceptive Special Exemptions Act that would increase the power of corporations and wealthy special interests in the state Capitol.
Among those at the event was Assembly Member Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento), who rallied the educators and reinforced the importance of securing voter approval of Proposition 30 and the defeat of Proposition 32 on Election Day, November 6.
Educators also make videos to explain to their colleagues why the election is crucial.
