Tell CA Legislators: Fund our Schools, Hospitals, Communities Real systemic change is impossible without the revenue to fund it.

By |2020-06-24T18:12:53-07:00June 24th, 2020|All Bargaining Units, People-Powered Politics|

Legislators have reached a deal on the 2020-21 state budget that rolls-back cuts that were initially proposed for child care, K-12 schools and community colleges, but it’s only a band-aid that stops the cuts for now. The COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustices have demonstrated that we need equitable, long-term investment in health care, education and [...]

March to Defund the Police … And Invest in Our Schools Tuesday, June 16, 10am @Miguel Contreras Learning Complex

By |2020-06-17T10:15:49-07:00June 15th, 2020|All Bargaining Units, People-Powered Politics|

As we put our demands for racial justice into action, SEIU Local 99 is firmly in support of defunding the police. But, to be clear, defunding the police does not mean eliminating the police. It means defunding the policies and practices that criminalize our children and promote the school to prison pipeline. It means no guns or handcuffs or choke holds on our children. It means more investment in education, counseling, parent engagement, after school programs and other services that have been decimated over the last several decades – with dire consequences on Black and Brown communities. Join us as we rally with Black Lives Matter-LA and other groups standing strong for justice and equity!
