2018 political action days – mark your calendar

 

This year, we will see victory at the ballot box and everyone has a role to play. Click this link to RSVP to participate in our critical work in the following areas: 

Endorsing and electing candidates who support working families: From City Council to Board of Supervisors to Governor, this will be a big election year. The SEIU Town Hall endorsement process allows us to ask candidates the tough questions and then decide who we will support in the elections this year.  Then we will talk to our members and our neighbors to tell them to support the candidates that support us. It’s fun and we know that every conversation makes a difference. Only members can attend endorsement meetings.

The Full Voter Participation Initiative will ensure that all San Diego county elections are decided in November when the most people vote. Our current systems allow candidates to win in the June primary with as little as 20 percent of the people voting. Together with our coalition we will collect 67,837 signatures to place this initiative on the November 2018 ballot for voters to approve.

Flip the 49th is our coalition effort to get rid of one of the most anti-worker members of Congress in the nation, Darrell Issa, who won by only 1,600 votes last election. Already we are walking, calling and rallying to #DumpIssa, and all members are welcome to join the effort.

Member Political Organizer Meetings: Our monthly MPO meetings are where we set the direction of our political program. We discuss important questions: Where should we send the most volunteers? How do we raise the most Committee on Political Education dollars? How should we spend our COPE dollars? All members are welcome at MPO meetings.
