CORE LA will prioritize mobilizing mass pressure on the state of California to institute progressive taxation. Millions are unaware of how these policies contribute to inequality. Voter education is the first step to addressing this. Union Power plans to focus on school board races but CORE believes this is just money down the drain as long as prop 13 is not reformed.
CORE LA identifies U.S. imperialism as the main reason the federal government has reduced it's support of k-12 education. As federal education funds to states decrease, states are forced cut back on programs. We vehemently denounce the warmongers and call on the Federal government to divest from the military and invest in education.
