janiceolivia
31:33
how do we know what the research has accomplished thus far?
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
32:44
Do we have an approximation of the per household tax increase?
DB
33:44
I understand that some of the research has benefited Sickle Cell improvement for African People
Kimberly Satterfield
34:29
according to pro argument it says there have been 2,900 medical discoveries already made
Harriet Johnson
35:54
And the benefits of our funding return to Californians only?
Kimberly Satterfield
36:57
It does say we will benefit for any discovery
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
41:35
It sounds like if we think there is benefit to the research that we are also required to be active in creating a different impact on the back side...in the other words we have to participate in the processes to have them work for us.
DB
42:11
The Pharmaceutical Industry’s profit margin exceeds 100% on some products and US Gov does not regulate that Industry together with Wall street, which benefits from these Pharmaceutical StartUPs and existing publicly traded companies
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
42:46
Also there are 11 more propositions to look at :)
Harriet Tubman Wright
42:56
we have 11 more propositions, lets move on
Cedric aka Ced#1
48:39
I got on this late. I'm assuming there's going to be a replay. Is the link going to be through the church YouTube channel?
Precious Green
49:24
Cedric, we are streaming live to YouTube. The link is posted above
Charita
50:02
Do we really think increasing taxes for businesses that are struggling is a good idea?
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
50:19
Note that only 40% of this is even slated for "schools"...and ditto what Josie is saying. Also, even given the original impact, I invite us to consider what the impact could be on our individual property taxes if this is an entrée to opening Prop 13.
Charita
50:45
Agree with Josie. Where is the money?
Bonnie Hopkins
51:56
Any proposition that raises taxes during this pandemic is a very bad idea.. we need to get back on our feet from this pandemic before raising any tax,,
DB
52:45
Businesses will pass their tax loss onto the consumer as part of their expenses, so will pay for this another way…… We should pause on CHANGES Of Property Taxes until COVID-19 is COMPLETE
Kimberly Satterfield
01:00:40
league of women voters has good information on this prop 15
DB
01:00:46
Appraisal Wise EBCRS Property Has a value that exceeds $3 M
Kimberly Satterfield
01:01:09
thank you Amar
Pat
01:01:24
There is another prop about homeownership-prop 19- From Pat
Rev. Jackson
01:02:10
Yes, this is not it!
Harriet Tubman Wright
01:03:18
we're referring to help for public schools, but charter schools are taking over public school sites
Harriet Johnson
01:04:17
Prop 15’s staggered application makes it more digestible. But I agree with Josie; we need a prop to account for the education dollars from past props.
Sherri Lynne
01:04:47
I joined to learn factual information. I'm sorry, at this rate, we will not get through the prop 17. Please let's move on.
DB
01:06:03
Let Us (the community people) become politically and economically Using our Metaphysics to Cause our own Proposition suite and for to become Lobbiest for OUR OWN AGENDA
Rebecca Hanif
01:06:44
I like the videos Peggy has presented. anyway you can share the links or the name of the person who is presenting the info?
Precious Green
01:10:15
I remember hearing about this when I lived in DC.
janiceolivia
01:11:19
changing laws don't change people hearts and minds or change systemic racism
DB
01:11:31
Time For Us to become Lobbiest for our own Agenda and create own Props.
Kimberly Satterfield
01:12:36
I see prop 16 is a preamble to reparations
janiceolivia
01:13:38
only if people don't find a loop hole to get around the prop. I think it's important because it gives us a shot.
Debora Adams-Truso
01:14:41
Can these recordings be shared with our community on facebook, email etc?
Precious Green
01:15:41
Debora - the session is being live streamed on YT and will be available for future viewing
Debora Adams-Truso
01:16:11
the future viewing is my question
janiceolivia
01:16:26
I heard that which ever city the prison are located in that city gets to count the inmates as part of their census
janiceolivia
01:17:10
so that city gets more funding
Cynthia Chang
01:17:25
People on parole can be allowed to vote…yes to voting
Precious Green
01:17:31
I don’t have the link to the videos Peggy is using but CalMatters offers a similar series of 1-min explainer videos: https://calmatters.org/election-2020-guide/
Debora Adams-Truso
01:20:39
Do we know Where is Peggy getting the videos
Rebecca Hanif
01:22:59
TRUTH!
cynthiacareygrant
01:23:11
can you show the numbers again
janiceolivia
01:25:14
It makes it tricky because most of the housing wealth is not in the POC community
Charita
01:25:31
What about the people impacted by the fires that need to find a new residence?
Rebecca Hanif
01:25:37
I like the idea of keeping the taxes low for older people. I wish they could also keep them low if I want to rent my current house, if I move out. Also, if the money goes to fire fighting, that would be helpful, as I don't think the fires will be going away.
Kimberly Satterfield
01:26:11
League of women voters opposes and gives an analysis
Harriet Tubman Wright
01:26:15
AFFORDABLE OR LOW COST HOUSING!
janiceolivia
01:26:43
how would this impact gentrification?
Rebecca Hanif
01:27:32
good questions!
Kimberly Satterfield
01:29:20
Prop 20 HELL NO
Sherri Lynne
01:29:58
I'm with you Kimberly. HELL NO!!!!
cynthiacareygrant
01:30:20
Good information!
Cedric aka Ced#1
01:30:30
Thank you Kimberly for that!
Ona’s iPad
01:36:39
But if you are a renter, your landlord can harass you to move out in hopes of receiving a higher paying renter
Ona’s iPad
01:38:10
As well as Richmond and Emeryville
Precious Green
01:38:35
4 props to go and 12 minutes. We can do it!
janiceolivia
01:38:36
Gentrification
Robert Quintana Hopkins
01:38:46
I’m wondering why the age of the house is a factor?
Ona’s iPad
01:40:32
A lot of slum lords are pushing people out to receive higher rent for sub-par apartments
cynthiacareygrant
01:44:52
Crazy!!!!!
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
01:46:45
It sounds like it, 22, would work the same way that temp agencies (do they still exist--LOL) use to work.
Kimberly Satterfield
01:47:18
It looks like Lyft and Uber are the primary supporters
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
01:48:20
Would love to hear from some of the folks on the call who have driven for Lyft and Uber...
Kimberly Satterfield
01:48:30
CA Labor Federation opposes
Kimberly Satterfield
01:50:03
SIEU opposes Prop 22
cynthiacareygrant
01:51:40
Thank you LaToya.
LaToya
01:52:26
no for me
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
01:52:51
So it sounds like ONLY Lyft and Uber would be exempted from AB5 if this passes.
Arleen King
01:53:44
Lola, please go next
cynthiacareygrant
01:54:25
This is it! The gig economy is robbing the poor and making uber rich billionaires.
Harriet Johnson
01:55:12
Uber/Lyft = Sharecropping. Very Interesting.
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
01:56:31
Note: Passage of this WILL NOT repeal AB5, except for these companies.
ReJoyce H
01:56:44
yes or no??? on 22. it’s confusing to me what’s beneficial to the drivers.
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
01:58:07
Question: Is the overall economy situated in a way that there are enough safety nets in place for people who are trying to work these as full time jobs? Especially health coverage.
LaToya
01:59:01
As a past driver the expense of doing the job does not pay your lively hood cost
Kimberly Satterfield
01:59:28
so LaToya you’re a no right
cynthiacareygrant
01:59:45
Very helpful information everyone. Thank you.
joannejohnson
02:00:31
Prop 21 = Y or N ? Please?
Cedric aka Ced#1
02:01:26
In my opinion: Uber and Lyft should be "required' if that's possible... to train on being a small business owner and safety
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
02:02:00
Does anyone have people that use these facilities?
Harriet Tubman Wright
02:03:10
THIS IS ABOUT PROFITS FOR DAVITA
Sherri Lynne
02:03:17
THANK YOU ZEE!!! I needed to understand.
LaToya
02:03:31

joannejohnson
02:03:35
Yes, Thank you Zee!
Ona’s iPad
02:03:56
Thank you!
Charita
02:04:10
Agree. The additional requirement may prevent accessibility
Cedric aka Ced#1
02:04:38
Harriet...is Davita for or against?
janiceolivia
02:06:48
THANK YOU EBCRS THIS HAS BEEN SUCH RICH CONVERSATION!!
Kimberly Satterfield
02:07:18
The passage of Prop 23 will close dialysis centers. There have not been major problems with centers. I was a social worker for many years in Ala county. Many of my clients were on dialysis. None of them suffered from poor care
Precious Green
02:08:37
@Kimberly, why will centers close? Why are Davita and Fresenius so opposed to having a medical doctor on premises??
cynthiacareygrant
02:10:51
truth!!
Kimberly Satterfield
02:10:53
I agree with Zee’s analysis. Nurses association are also opposed and california Medical association
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
02:12:17

Cedric aka Ced#1
02:14:32
If there's some deeper analysis on those 52 pages...somewhere!
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
02:14:33
It may be also include a who sets up and staffs the agency....
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
02:15:01
It is important to note the pro and con supporters!!!!
Kimberly Satterfield
02:15:03
and Delores Huerta opposes Prop 24
janiceolivia

Harriet Johnson
02:24:59

Kimberly Satterfield
02:26:40

Rebecca Hanif

Charita
02:37:54
I also say no on this one.....pay the bail.
Ona’s iPad
02:39:06
People have stayed in County jails here in California / Bay Area for YEARS awaiting trial
Kimberly Satterfield
02:39:42
I am absolutely against cash bail AND I am really concerned how decisions about who is and is not eligible for bail will be determined
D. Jacquelyn Edwards
02:39:45
Thank you Ona. That helps a lot.
