Action Day for a Better California Rallies Against Governor's Reforms
School Funding Crisis Action Day in Sacramento and LA on May 25th
The Alliance for a Better California, which is a statewide organization that includes labor unions of educators, public service workers, and service employees, called for an Action Day for a Better California to demonstrate against the governor's so-called "reforms." Rallies were held on May 25th in Sacramento and Los Angeles. Photos from LA protest | Report, Photos from Sacramento | Photos from Watsonville anti-Arnold protest: 1 | 2

ABC has united, it says, "to protect our state, while the governor continues to raise more special interest contributions than any governor in state history. We don't need to waste $70 million on a special election that no one wants with initiatives that no one supports. We need real reforms that will move California forward, rather than the governor's broken promises and short-sighted proposals that will further damage California public schools. Help send a message to the governor that the 'special interests' he keeps referring to are thousands of ordinary citizens and workers concerned about public school children, hospital patients, and overall public safety."
