The League in ACTION!

League members are active in outreach and planning activities in a number of important areas.​​

  • The San Jose League is actively supporting public education on the importance of a full 2020 Census count. Our teams are busy working on outreach efforts to assure that every person is counted. Why do we need the 2020 Census? Learn more below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  How can you can help with the Census? Find out          more  HERE.

  • Should the City of San Jose change its form of governance -- from the current Council-City Manager system to a "strong mayor" system? The League is looking at the impacts of this change and how it would affect our community.

  • We are actively supporting the upcoming Schools and Communities First Initiative and will be participating in public education programs over the next year.

  • The Natural Resources/Climate Change Committee continues to monitor progress around San Jose Clean Energy, noting the efforts to move more San Jose residents to elect "Total Green," for 100% carbon-free, and 100% renewable energy. Read more about our Climate Committee HERE.

February Lunch With League Hosted Ryan Skolnick

 

Our February speaker was Ryan Skolnick, a community organizer for the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United. Ryan will be speaking on Medicare for All and What it Means for You.  

 

He has worked on single-payer advocacy since 2013, vocally advocating for HR 676, the prior version of Medicare for All in the House of Representatives, and SB 562, a single-payer bill introduced in 2017 in the state of California.

 

He also helped write Initiative 1600, a ballot measure in Washington State that would have implemented a Medicare for All-type system in the state. 

Message From the President

February  2020:  The Work Begins!

We are right in the middle of one of the

busiest times for our organization:  just

before an election. 

 

  • Our Voter Service team headed by

     Sara Nicolson is working hard to get

     more and more people registered to

     vote. 

 

  • Sandy Mory and her volunteers are producing candidates’ forums so attendees can hear the candidates answer their questions and learn about the new voting procedures and the 2020 Census. 

 

  • Martha Beattie is producing Pros & Cons events on ballot issues and the expanded voting procedures and the census.

While these events are wonderful

resources for those of us who attend, we

know we don’t reach a large number of

voters. Where can everyone go to find our

nonpartisan, unbiased presentation of all

candidates and issues on the ballot on

March 3rd?   Votersedge.org.

We have a team of people who are contacting all local candidates to add information about themselves and their candidacies.  We are working to publish videos of the candidates' forums so people  ... read more HERE.
