Prop C Town Hall Meeting
On June 5, 2018, San Francisco voters approved the Early Care and Education (ECE) for all Initiative (aka Baby Prop C) which could provide an estimated $121 million annually in new funding to support quality ECE for children ages 0-5 in San Francisco. Over the last 7 months, OECE collected input from parents, families, early educators, ECE stakeholders, and San Francisco community members on their priorities, needs, and opportunities for ECE in San Francisco in order to help inform a first 5 year spending plan for Baby Prop C funds.

The goal of this town hall is to share a summary of community input collected throughout this process as well as our draft spending plan proposal. Interpretation will be provided in Cantonese and Spanish and snacks and refreshments will be served.

Saturday, June 8th 2019 1:00 - 3:00pm City College of San Francisco Multi-Use Building
50 Frida Kahlo Way, Room 140, San Francisco, CA 94112
