PDA-San Francisco presents a free public forum
San Francisco Propositions C and D propose additional taxes on commercial rental property, but for competing purposes: child care and education (Prop C) vs. housing and homelessness services (Prop. D). Sandee Blechman, Executive Director of the Children’s Council of San Francisco, and Anthony Rodriguez, outreach coordinator of the “Yes on D” campaign, will present arguments in favor of the respective ballot measures.

Barcelona en Comú
In a world where capitalist globalization is increasing its control over the lives of ordinary people, Barcelona is a great exception that could be a model for progressives everywhere. In 2014, the popular feminist-led movement, “Barcelona en Comú” (Barcelona in Common) took power and began an ambitious program of reforming the local institutions and creating a thriving Peace Economy.
This forum will feature a report and slide show by Shirley Golub, vice-chair and secretary of PDA-San Francisco (and co-founder of the new PAC PDA-CA), who recently visited Barcelona with CodePink.

PLUS Mayoral Candidate Amy Farah Weiss presents “A To-Do list for San Francisco’s next Mayor”
