Announcing the Reclaim California’s Future Coalition
The powerful grassroots coalition that sponsored the Millionaires Tax of 2012 and worked with Governor Brown to craft Proposition 30 is back! We've broadened our reach and re-organized as the Reclaim California's Future coalition. We will run a grassroots campaign to deliver 250,000 votes in 23 counties to pass Prop 30 on November 6, 2012.
Why are we dedicated to passing Prop 30?
- Prop 30 is the first step to investing in California’s families -- our future. Our families can’t succeed unless our schools have teachers, colleges are affordable, libraries stay open, and neighborhoods stay safe. This initiative puts the state’s priority back on what matters: our future, our families, our neighborhoods.
- Prop 30 brings fairness to our tax code. 90% of the funding comes from increasing taxes on the wealthiest 2%, who’ve done well in these tough times while the rest of us have suffered. We need to close loopholes and make our tax code fair to the 99% of us who work hard and play by the rules, not just the wealthy who lobby hard and rewrite the rules.
- Prop 30 begins to restore the billions in cuts that have been made to our schools, libraries, clinics and essential services. If this doesn’t pass, the state will automatically cut $5 billion more.
