The War on Women and the Battle to Save CalWORKs.

In two years in office, Governor Jerry Brown has drastically cut CalWORKS, a welfare program for poor parents, mostly women of color. A panel of speakers strategizes how to rescind these budget reductions and build a movement to fight all social service cuts. Thursday, July 26, 7:00pm. New Valencia Hall, 747 Polk St., SF. Door donation $2-5. Snacks and childcare available. For more information, call 415-864-1278 or email BAradicalwomen [at] earthlink.net. Wheelchair accessible. Sponsored by Sisters United Front for Survival, a project of Radical Women.
