PDA-CA Statewide Meeting (via Zoom)

Are you suffering from "Proposition Confusion" syndrome?

Causes include: Hearing something good about a proposition, then hearing something bad about the same proposition. Which is a fact? Which is an obfuscation (what is a lie?) Symptoms: Confusion, frustration, cynicism, and the tendency to vote "No" on everything on the ballot.

We are thrilled to announce that Mimi Kennedy will be the moderator.  Mimi is well known among PDA people. She is a lifetime progressive activist and has been on the board of PDA since it was founded in 2004. She is a working actor with 105 film and television credits plus more credits for her work as a screen writer and producer.

Mimi will introduce...

  1. A non-partisan guest from the League of Women Voters will describe each of the propositions telling us what each really means.
  2. A person for each proposition to discuss if each proposition is worth a yes (or no) vote.
  3. A Q&A for each proposition where you can ask our experts a (1 minute) question.
  4. We will have a straw poll as to how you will likely vote on the propositions once we cover them all. To participate in the poll, we strongly recommend you join the meeting on a computer, a smartphone, or a tablet, but not a dial-in phone (like a flip-phone or a landline) since they do not have video.

We will let all of our California members know the results of the straw poll and how to watch the recording of the meeting on YouTube.

These are the statewide propositions on the November ballot –

Proposition 1 - Change the California Constitution to expressly include existing rights to reproductive freedom.

  • Claudia Powell, Senior Public Affairs Specialist - Planned Parenthood, Los Angeles will be discussing Prop. 1 with us.

Proposition 26 - Legalize sports betting at tribal casinos.

Proposition 27 - Allow online betting and “games” in California by out-of-state corporations.

  • Mary Ann Andreas, Chair of the CDP Native American Caucus, will be discussing both Prop. 26 and Prop. 27 with us

Proposition 28 -  Expand K-12 funding for art and music in public schools

  • Child Advocate, Ann Crosbie, Chair of the CDP Children's Caucus, will be discussing Prop. 28 with us.

Proposition 29 - Require dialysis clinics to have at least one physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant present during procedures

Proposition 30 - Raise taxes on the wealthy to fund wildfire management and electric vehicle incentives and infrastructure

Proposition 31 - Overturn the ban on flavored tobacco products.

  • A representative from the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, will be discussing Prop. 28 with us.

In the unlikely event that we cover the propositions with time to spare we may discuss the candidates for the Statewide offices who will be on the ballot.

Invite your confused Democrats, Republicans or No Party Preference friends.
