What Find out about Proposition 15, Schools and Communities First, and how it could help close huge local budget deficits caused by the pandemic.


WhoBen Grieff sits on the Executive Committee of the Prop. 15: Schools and Communities First initiative that will appear on the November ballot, and will discuss what Prop 15 will and won’t do, answer questions, and explain how to get involved. This initiative will reform the commercial side of Prop. 13 and reclaim $12 billion a year for California’s schools and communities.

Ashby Village, which is hosting the event, is a non-profit organization serving Albany, Berkeley, El Cerrito, Emeryville, Kensington, North Oakland and Richmond supporting older adults to remain active and engaged while remaining in their homes. Elder Action is an interest group of Ashby Village that is focused on advocacy for political reform and social justice. More information about Ashby Village is available at


When:  Tuesday, August 18, 2-4 p.m.


Why: Proposition 15 will be on the ballot this November. It will close a loophole in Prop 13 that will bring $12 billion in yearly revenue to our schools and communities by ensuring that a handful of the largest corporations like Disney and Chevron begin to pay their fair share of property taxes. It will not affect residential property of any kind.
