SFCCPA September 17, 2018 News Update

In accord with the SFCCPA’s mission — to build unity with families and community allies to access needed resources to provide the highest quality early care and education for all of San Francisco’s children — we worked hard to make sure Prop. C passed in June. This initiative will bring an estimated $100-150M in needed revenue to early care & education programs by taxing commercial property owners earning over $1M.
Now, a lawsuit has been filed by Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association, Building Owners and Management Association (BOMA), California Business Roundtable, and California Business Properties Association to block not only this child care initiative — but our ability to raise needed resources for our community. We are dedicated to our mission and ready and proud to join with Parent Voices and ECE community allies to protect the funding voters passed, and our ability to continue to raise needed resources.
Thanks to all the educators who stepped up with Parent Voices last Tuesday at our community press conference. See more details in the links below on the lawsuit and our community response.
