We’ve got just over a week until Election Day next Tuesday, so first things first: if you can vote, did you vote? If you haven’t voted yet, what’s your plan? If you mailed or dropped off your ballot, you can track it here. As a reminder, Housing California recommends voting YES on 15 for our schools, housing, and communities; YES on 16 for racial justice; and YES on 21 to stabilize rent.
Maybe, like many of us, you’re anxious about the election? Put that energy towards RUN’s plans for 2021. On last week’s Community Care call and in our “first cut” meeting on Friday, we looked at all the ideas RUN members suggested we fight for in 2021. We’ll need to answer two questions as we narrow the ideas down: 1. What’s important to us? 2. What can we win next year? We’ll look at the second question during the Summit, but for now, we’re trying to figure out what urgent and long-term California housing challenges we care about the most right now.
You can add your voice to that conversation. Join us at the Community Care call on Wednesday at 1pm. Then look out for a survey in this space where you can vote for your favorite suggestions, coming in the next week or two. The process might be messy, but it’s real, and what we end up with will reflect what RUN members across the state are thinking and feeling.
Take good care,
