SF Parents, Youth & Providers Rally Against Millions in Budget Cuts Threatened by City: Hundreds to Demand a Fair Budget for SF FamiliesAdded to the calendar on Wednesday Mar 19th, 2008 3:44 PM
WHAT: The Family Budget Coalition holds the Stand with Families Rally to call on the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors to support a fair city budget for struggling families. The coalition will also launch their Budget Agenda for FY 2008-09 that prioritizes the needs of San Francisco’s low-income families.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 26th / 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (program starts at 11:15 a.m.)
WHERE: Steps of San Francisco City Hall (Polk Street Entrance)
WHO: The Family Budget Coalition is made up of hundreds of SF families, youth & providers
WHY: The Family Budget Coalition is calling attention to the lack of a safety net for struggling families in San Francisco. Already San Francisco’s low-income families are struggling to meet basic needs such as childcare, housing, & health services. And for FY 08-09 there is at least $3 million in city services for kids at risk of being cut.
