Are you a parent, student, educator, or community member who cares about funding for public education? 

Join Coleman Advocates and SF Rising for a community session on Commercial Property Tax Reform and join the statewide effort to MAKE IT FAIR!

In 1978, Proposition 13 was passed by California voters, freezing property taxes. While good for homeowners, it especially benefited big businesses who owned property - but ultimately Prop 13 had devastating effects on our public schools and other services. Since 1978, California has dropped from being in the top 5 states for public education funding, to the bottom 5 states - and our kids bear the brunt of those funding decreases. 

The Make It Fair coalition is building support across the state of California to fight for Commercial Property Tax Reform (which would continue to protect residential properties). This initiative would raise $9 billion for the state of California, and almost $700 million for San Francisco alone. Imagine how those funds could support our schools and our city... Join us!
