We can’t go back! 10.24.16

Hello UTR Members,
Only 15 days left until Election Day! Your Executive Board, Political Action committee, and leadership have been working tirelessly in order to increase awareness on legislature that will affect our lives if not passed. We need YOU to help us.
As you know, MEASURE T is what pays for our Counselors, Librarians, Sports, and k-3 class size reduction. Can you imagine WCCUSD without counselors or librarians?! With kinder classes of 28? If that’s not scary enough, imagine us losing $110 million dollars if Proposition 55 doesn’t pass?! Back to the days of furloughs and pink slipping. Back to the days with no electives for students, arts, sciences, or music… We also need to help elect teacher and student friendly board members that will fight for our interests!
YES this is a California and a WCCUSD that we MUST NOT GO BACK TO. So join us. There are many ways you can help in the last 15 days!
1. You can come phone banking at the UTR Office! Anyone that comes will get a $20 dollar gift card, food, and a ticket for a chance to win one of our big prizes we’re giving away (see below)! Phone Banking happens from 3:30 to 6:00 PM
2. You can come canvass with us! We have three Saturday’s left that we are walking our neighborhoods. We will walk from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Locations are posted on our facebook and website every week. If you join us canvassing you will get a $30 dollar gift card AND a ticket for a chance to win one of our big prizes (see below).

3. You can post on your twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or email all your friends and family members to vote YES on T, 55, 58, Phillips, and Taboada this November.

4.  Rally to support UTR school board candidates, Mister Philips and Carlos Taboada, from Wednesday 5:30 -7:00 in El Cerrito! Come anytime between 5:30 and 7:00. We will be at the corners of Central and San Pablo. Bring a sign or make a sign there! We will have supplies.  Eat dinner at Off The Grid on Fairmont afterwards!
