The 28ERS Presents | Pennies for Penny: A Phone-Banking Potluck

"PENNIES FOR PENNY: A Phone-Banking Potluck"

Please Join The 28ers in Supporting Penny Newman's Campaign to Elect Her as a Supervisor for Riverside County in November of 2018. When it comes to local politics, many people talk and discuss local city council and mayoral races, but the "Board of Supes" position carries with it even greater financial potential to foster policy outcomes and protect the Inland Empire's region from the predatory aspects of Big Prison, Dark Warehouses & Big Developer Money.

ABOUT THE PBS-FRONTLINE DOCUMENTARY:

In a special investigation in collaboration with Marketplace, FRONTLINE travels to the remote epicenter of the campaign finance debate for a tale of money, politics, and intrigue.

THE 28ERS PRESENTS | "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy"

The 28ers are ANGRY at the prospect of having to PHONE-BANK in order to SAVE California's SB-562 (Single Payer), having tirelessly advocated and organized over the last three months for this visionary bill. During the typical FRIDAY NEWS DUMP (a technique whereby politicians release toxic information or make decisions to avoid scrutiny from the public), California Assemblyman Anthony Rendon shelved SB-562, citing disingenuous claims about the bill's lack of "financial clarity," thereby preventing Healthy California from actually amending the bill to solve that trumped up "concern."

The 28ERS Presents | "Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Point"

The 28ers at UCR and Riverside's 28ers Chapters are both excited at the prospect of re-uniting this month to co-host a documentary screening of "Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Point." The 58-minute film is a take-no-prisoners account of America's current & tragic healthcare system, and how Single-Payer might reverse our continued slide into the moral abyss. The 58-minute film will be followed by a discussion on current single-payer legislation, as well as explore the long-term solutions involved in creating a one-vote, one-voice democracy for the 99%.

The 28ERS Presents | California's Single-Payer Forum (SB 562)

Campaign for a Healthy California, California Nurses Association and National Nurses United worked hard to get SB 562 introduced, thank you. It was introduced by Senators Lara and Atkins on February 17, 2017.
