On October 16th, we're calling for a statewide day of action. Students will be able to attend 16 events, 12 in-person and 4 entirely digital.
One of these will be in San Jose, to battle back the opposition's constant activity in
Santa Clara County and show the level of support for Prop 16 in the South Bay Area.
We'll have a BLM banner drop and a rally on Prop 16, with a variety of students,
grassroots activists, and local elected officials sharing their story on the struggle for
racial and gender equity.
Safety is our first goal, so please stay home if you or someone you live with is immunocompromised or you're feeling under the weather and tune into our digital events.
