We, the people of San Francisco, want to save our school and reverse the cuts to classes, programs, staff, and teachers. Join us on March 14 to call on the city’s elected officials to take immediate action. City Hall must ensure that Prop A funds are used for education — as the voters intended.
DEFEND OUR COLLEGE!
CITY HALL MUST TAKE ACTION TO SAVE CCSF
City College of San Francisco (CCSF) is widely acknowledged to be one of the best community colleges in the country. The current crisis is largely the joint creation of two groups: the accreditation commission (ACCJC), an unaccountable rogue body that has ties to for-profit colleges and the student loan industry; second, interim administrators who have no long-term commitment to the school. Both are abusing the accreditation process to impose an agenda to downsize the college, funneling students into private and online schools that will saddle them with crushing debt. This is an attack on tens of thousands of Bay Area residents, particularly from low-income, people of color, and immigrant communities.

The following statement was adopted by the San Francisco Peace and Freedom Party on September 1, 2011. It can be downloaded as a flyer to print and distribute here.
The San Francisco Peace and Freedom Party opposes both pension "Reform" initiatives - the Adachi pension "deform" initiative (Prop. D) as well as the Ed Lee "Consensus" pension initiative (Prop. C.) The Adachi initiative was funded largely by California billionaire Michael Mortiz paying $5.00 a signature to get it on the ballot. The Mayor's initiative was supported in large part by billionaire Warren Hellman, another San Francisco billionaire. Prop. C also appears in the Voters Handbook with a paid argument in favor by the San Francisco Labor Council Executive Committee. The text of that argument was then presented to the general membership, after the fact, as a "fait accompli."

Time of meeting: 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.
