Fri, Aug 25, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

This is just an informal gathering to talk about the ballot proposal language and initiative. A few of us (Gillian, Lyssa and I) decided to get together and wanted to extend it to the larger group. If you are interested in attending, please let us know, so we reserve a large enough spot. We'd really like to hear about your thoughts on the revised and approved ballot language and your experiences canvassing, if you have already started.

We will have copies of the ballot proposal for review at the event. Maybe we'll collect a few signatures:)
