As part of this year’s Weekend to End Homelessness, we will be addressing racial disparities that lead to an over-representation of Black people experiencing homelessness. Prop 16 will bring back race-conscious programs to tackle race specific issues in college admissions, hiring, and contracting.
I’m hosting a virtual text bank for Yes On Prop 16 and want you to join me on Zoom. You do not need your phone, just a computer and a comfy place to relax.
