Join teachers, students, health care workers, state workers, parents and others in a bilingual community forum to speak out and organize against the budget cuts. The budget cuts have slashed services to communities across California while corporations and banks continue to make huge profits off the state's resources. Trillions of dollars of our money has been given to the big banks. Every day $500 million goes to pay for war and occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan while healthcare, schools and everything else the people need are being cut back. It is time we organize ourselves to stop the cuts and make people's needs a priority.
Become a part of the organizing to stop the budget cuts, speak out on Sept.26!
