We need your help to raise funds for early care and education in San Francisco. Help collect signatures and distribute materials. Sign up below!
A ballot measure raising an estimated $100-150M, with the majority of funds dedicated to ECE, has been put forward by Supervisors Kim and Yee with the support of Fewer, Ronen, and Peskin. See the story on CBS news announced on Monday, January 8. While this initiative has the support of the supervisors, with enough public signatures, this initiative could pass with a simple majority (50 + 1) vote, instead of the 67% required of dedicated tax revenues placed on the ballot by supervisors.
We need the ECE community to help gather signatures. You can do this at your site, in your neighborhood, or at classes and events you attend. Can you help distribute materials? Sign up below to let us know!
Timeline: The signature forms are under review by the City Attorney now, and may be ready by January 22. We will distribute as soon as they are ready so we can turn them in by February 1.
Supervisor Yee sends his thanks in advance, and adds, “Time will be extraordinarily short to gather signatures. We may have at most 2 weeks and as little as 10 days to gather 17,000 signatures. All signatures must be by registered San Francisco voters. So it will be intense once we get going.”
Sign up to let us know you’re on board to help! Thanks.
