Press Conference and Rally: A FIGHT FOR OUR CALIFORNIA DREAM AND THE FUTURE OF OUR FAMILIES
A broad coalition of community and labor leaders, students, and elected officials call on Fresno's working families to vote this November 6th and defend our families' future!
Fresno, CA – The stakes are high for California’s working class in this election cycle, and our state's 679,000 newly registered voters can make the difference in the final results.  Most of this year’s new voters are current high school graduates, college students and new citizens. These are also the people most affected by recent budget cuts and other attacks on working families by corporations and the super wealthy.
That's why we call on working families to come out and vote this November 6th, vote YES on Proposition 30 and NO on Proposition 32!
WHAT:  Community and labor leaders, students, teachers, and elected officials
WHEN:  Thursday, November 1, 2012 at 11:00 A.M.
WHERE:  Hugh Burns State Bldg, 2550 Mariposa Mall, Fresno, CA (Between O and P Street/Tulare St) – Across City Hall
WHO:  Communities for a New California (CNC), Fresno-Tulare-Madera Kings County Central Labor Council (CLC), El Concilio de Fresno, Inc, Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), California Latino Child Development Association, Comite Primero de Mayo, Central Valley Dream Team, Campaign for A Healthy California, Fresno State NAACP, San Joaquin Valley Chicano Latino Youth Leadership Institute and other organizations and elected officials.
OUT OF STATE Billionaires, CEO’s and their SECRET CORPORATE backers are threatening to stand in the way of our California Dream, by funneling millions into California to pass Prop 32:  an anti-worker measure that will block union members from representing our families' interests in politics, while exempting corporations and the super wealthy from the same rules and allowing them to funnel as much money as they want into political campaigns.

Let’s not forget that contributions and work from union members is why we have 8 hour days, meals breaks, and basic safety protections for workers. Can we afford to lose that by letting prop 32 pass?
That's why hard working families throughout our Valley and state are saying “No on Prop 32!”
THE SAME “ANONYMOUS” WEALTHY BACKERS are pouring in tens of millions to defeat proposition 30:  a measure that was put on the ballot thanks to community organizations, students and leaders across the state, and which would help our state stop the bleeding our schools have seen from the 20 billion in recent budget cuts.
That's why students, parents, school employees and teachers say "Yes on Prop 30!"
Join Laborers’ International Union of North America, in collaboration with Communities for a New California, Fresno-Tulare-Madera-Kings County Central Labor Council, El Concilio de Fresno, Inc, and others in this call to action.
VISUALS:  American flags. Diverse group of community leaders, elected officials, students and workers with “No on 32” banners and “Yes on Prop 30” signs.

Vote Yes on Prop. 30, No on Prop. 32!

Jerry Brown: Vote Yes On Proposition 30 It's time to take a stand and get our state back on track. read more HERE.

Stop the Special Exemptions Act: Vote NO on Prop 32!
CEOs and corporate special interests already spend millions trying to influence elections in California -- and now they want Special Exemptions to gain even more power. That's why the Sacramento Bee's Dan Morain said "The 'Stop Special Interest Money Now Act' won't do anything of the kind..." (12/22/11). The so-called "Stop Special Interest Money Now Act" was really intentionally written to allow billionaire businessmen and shady Super PACs to continue spending secret money on elections.  Even worse, it limits the voices of everyday heroes like nurses, teachers and firefighters to speak out on critical issues. Learn more and pledge to Vote NO on Prop 32 HERE.

 
Watch Ad No On 32: Have You Heard? HERE
Prop 32 claims it will stop campaign spending by special interests, but it exempts those who are funding the campaign. Those special interests will have free reign to give themselves more tax breaks, while the middle class pays the price. Prop 32 is not what it seems.

Oakhurst Non-GMO Dinner and Forum
On Saturday, September 22, 2012 @5:30-7:30PM (Free Forum begins at 6:15PM)
At the Oakhurst Senior Center, 39800 Road 425B, Oakhurst, CA (next to the Oakhurst Community Center)
The Yosemite Area Move to Amend is sponsoring a Dinner and Forum to get the word out about GMOs (genetically modified foods). These changes in our food supply are an example of how some corporations are using corporate money and influence to get what they want at the public's expense.  And, yes, there really is something we can do about it, vote YES on Prop 37! So, you are invited to this Forum with a NON-GMO Dinner cooked by Betty Persson (choice of either organic Chicken or Veggie Dinner). To make the event more fun Jimmy Collier will provide live music, a blend of folk, blues, gospel, country and soul.  Pete Seeger described Jimmy as, "the real thing... he makes music live...." Free program will include short video and discussion. The information we have collected is amazing and useful to your friends and families. Please join us for this fun and informative evening. For more info and to RSVP for Dinner by September 18th (dinner tickets are $8.00) please contact Vic at 559.676.5287 or
