Be a Champion for Our Schools & Communities

What is 100 Champions for Our Schools & Communities?

100 Champions for Our Schools & Communities is a collaboration by AAPI FORCE and our network organizations. The goal is to expand grassroots power, and build a powerful progressive force to mobilize on key issues and win Schools & Communities First! We want to build a community of folks who can support one another on taking action towards our collective vision for our future.

 

From the earlier campaign days of building the coalition to gathering signatures to qualify the campaign, to now preparing for the fight at the polls, we’ve always relied on and will continue to need grassroots, activist power to fuel the movement. We know we will be outspent millions by wealthy corporations and the corporate elite. That is why we need champions in our communities to help us to talk to voters, text their networks, write op-eds, design graphics, utilize storytelling, etc, so we can put our #CommunitiesOverCorporations. With #PeoplePower, that is how we can put our Schools and Communities First.

100 Champions Volunteer Launch

At our volunteer launch event, we had a lively night of laughter, political education, and empowerment! We built connections amongst volunteers, learned about the history of Schools and Communities First (Prop 15) and its role in the movement for racial justice, and made a plan to work together to win this November. If you missed the event, you can watch the recording below!

Join Our Movement.

The movement to win Schools and Communities First is a movement for racial justice. It’s a movement to show that working-class families deserve to thrive. It’s a movement to demand just conditions for immigrants, refugees, and communities of color. Schools and Communities First is a movement to put #CommunitiesOverCorporations. We are in for the battle of our lifetime as we take on big money corporate interests, but we know that with #PeoplePower, we can win the future that we deserve. Will you join us?
