ANNOUNCEMENTS

Monday, August 1

A 1, Monday, 2:00pm, Hearing on Tech Tax for Housing & Homelessness (postponed from last Thursday)

SF City Hall, Room, Room 263
1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place
SF

Join the COH as we stand against corporate interests prioritized over human needs. Come demand much needed funding for affordable housing and homeless services from wealthy tech corporations at this special Budget Committee Hearing this Thursday.

The proposed tech fair share tax would raise $120 million a year for affordable housing and homeless services. The revenue gathered from the tech tax would mean housing and basic needs for SF’s homeless communities.

Sponsor: Coalition on Homelessness

A 3, Wednesday, 10:00am – 3:30pm, SB 1015 – Children’s March & Lobby Day

California State Capitol
Sacramento, CA

We’ll be mobilizing hundreds of community members from across California to show the legislature the broad range support for SB1015- The 2016 Domestic Workers Bill of Rights.

Rally, Children’s March and Lobby Day, all aimed to uplift the dignity off all families across the state. We know that dignity for domestic work is valued equally by workers as by employers, youth, students, seniors, folks with disabilities, people of faith, unions, community organizations, and many more!

Petition

STATE OF CALIFORNIA REPEAL THE PEACE OFFICERS BILL OF RIGHTS

TO: CALIFORNIA STATE LEGISLATURE AND GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN

We demand that the California Legislature & Governor Jerry Brown repeal the Peace Officers Bill of Rights. This is a law which has given unprecedented power to Law Enforcement who abuse and kill citizens. They are given virtual immunity against prosecution under the protection of this law. The ACLU published a report in 2014 stating that African Americans are killed at 3 times the rate of Whites and twice the rate of Hispanics.
