California Partnership, HHS Network and CA4SSI will be have January Budget Actions across the state. This will be Governor Jerry Brown’s last budget. Will his legacy be to ignore the over 20% of Californians who are living in poverty? Over 20 percent of Californians are living in poverty and another 20% of Californians are in “near-poverty,” which means they struggle to pay for food and shelter.
Local Participating organizations: California Partnership, SIREN, Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, Low Income Self Help Center, CARA and other organizations.
Please join us to defend the social safety net programs like Medi-cal, CalWORKS, CalFRESH, and SSI. These programs are the core of the social determinants of health, structural determinants and conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. These social determinants inform our socioeconomic status, education, the physical environment, employment, and social support networks and access to health care.
Join us in response to Governor Jerry Brown’s January Budget proposal to demand that he does not build a legacy on the backs of Californians living in poverty.
