No on S, Yes on LA
Our work in communities makes it clear - Vote No on S. This measure goes too far by driving up rents, destroying jobs, and increasing homelessness. Our Co-ED Elizabeth designed several posters that will make you question and oppose Measure S -  you can download them here. You can also join us at deLAB's event on Tuesday, February 28th from 6:30-9:30PM to pick up posters, postcards - and learn about ways to get involved. Please RSVP here.

Our Co-ED Helen will be moderating an all star panel that includes Tamika Butler, Danny Gamboa, Rani Narula-WoodsNolan Borgman, and Dylan Jones. Please RSVP here.
