It is a cruel irony that many students are eligible to vote and will live with the November 2020 election results for longer than most of us, yet are not likely to vote. To help address this, we’re hosting community organizers and local officials for a discussion on one of today’s more relevant topics: voting for justice. All are welcome!
Students: Please join us on October 13, 2020, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m., for Cast Your Vote: Own Your Power, a virtual discussion on ballot measures that address injustice rooted in economic inequality. Register here. Faculty: You're invited, too. We respectfully ask you to offer extra credit or to make the event an assignment. In return, we promise relevant learning, engaging discussion, and social solidarity many of us are craving.
Cast Your Vote: Own Your Power - Tuesday, 10/13, 4:30 – 6:30
4:30 - Introduction and audience check-in
4:35 - Discussion on Proposition 15 with the California Federation of Teachers, followed by Q&A

Students will have the opportunity to ask and vote on questions throughout the event. The session will be recorded so attendees, students, and others will have access to the event later.

Why should students vote? The outcomes of the November 3rd election will dramatically affect the next four years of our lives. This two minute video provides a good reminder.
Americans have fought long and hard for voting rights and the fight against voter suppression is ongoing. This Skyline College Library resource includes criteria for who can vote and the history of the fight for voting rights. http://bit.ly/votersuppressionhistory
Recognizing and respecting that not all of our Skyline College students or employees are eligible to vote, we hope you'll share this page with friends and classmates.
