News to celebrate on a long July 4th weekend! Judge Schulman had ninety days, but ruled in two in favor of both Prop Cs—for child care and education, and for affordable housing and supports to those without houses.

Our eventual victory is an important one, not only because this will mean the $120M for ECE, and $300M for affordable housing, but it will recognize a more democratic process on future measures put on the ballot through a citizen's initiative—allowing communities to access needed funds for human services.
