Update: Motion heads to a City Council vote on 6/13—RSVP for public comment!
WE'RE HEADING TO A FINAL VOTE: City Council has scheduled the motion to study the feasibility of establishing a democracy vouchers program, including options for full public financing, at the City Council meeting THIS Tuesday, June 13 at 10AM.
Your voice is needed for this important vote! This is the last opportunity to show Council there's serious community interest in exploring options to expand our campaign finance system and empower more Angelenos, especially working class communities and communities of color, to participate in our democracy.

And to Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council and Neighborhood Council Valley Village for submitting a Community Impact Statement in support of the motion!
