Getting out the vote for the Midterm Election!

Getting out the vote for the Midterm Election!

We are working hard to reach voters about the election on November 8th! While elections are not the only way to make change for our communities, we know they are an important tool that can have impacts on our communities for years, if not decades, to come. That's why we are calling voters and knocking on doors to make sure our communities 1) Know about the election, 2) Have the tools they need to vote, 3) Actually get those ballots in!

We need your help if we're going to make sure our communities turn out big for this election. Sign up for a phonebank on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30-6:30pm or a doorknock on Saturdays and Sundays, 9:30am-2:30pm. Together, we can break voter turnout records and make sure working-class communities of color are heard loud and clear at the ballot box this November.

Cancel ALL Student Debt and Make College Free for All

Cancel ALL Student Debt and Make College Free for All

President Biden is cancelling $10-20k of student debt for borrowers making less $125k/year, but we know that because of our country's history of racist institutions and policies, our BIPOC students have not had the same opportunity to build up generational wealth like their white peers, forcing us to have to take out more student loans. If President Biden really wants to address the racial and economic divide in higher education, he needs to cancel ALL student debt for our communities to feel true liberation from the burden of student debt. That's why our student organizers are working hard to fight for complete student debt cancellation and free college for all. Join our amazing student volunteer team by signing up to be a volunteer today. Our student organizers hold monthly meetings to talk about how we can win full student loan cancellation and free college for all, phonebank and doorknock to reach Bay Area San Francisco students, table on college campuses, facilitate classroom presentations, and hold mass actions to put pressure on our elected officials to make higher education accessible. They can't do this work without support though. Sign up to be a volunteer today and help us win liberation for students!
