July Newsletter from Santa Clara County
Congratulations to all THREE of our Green California candidates, Laura Wells, Kenneth Mejia and Rodolfo Cortes Barragan for breaking through the Top Two stranglehold on our democracy! They are all moving on to the November 6th General Elections!
The Green Party of California is working hard to mount a statewide campaign and organize volunteers behind our fine candidates and YOU CAN HELP!
Please DONATE to our candidates, volunteer to phone bank or text bank and advocate for them on social media. We Greens have to be our own media because main stream corporate media has locked us out of the conversation for decades. Help us turn our government GREEN! #WeAreGreen

"The never silent, hilariously thought-provoking,Tony and OBIE award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe, celebrates its 60th anniversary of revolutionary theatre with an anthology of scripts from 2000 - 2016. From the War on Terror to the War on Drugs, from genetically modified foods to financially modified democracy, from corporate personhood to Occupy to Trump - the Troupe has dealt with the issues of the day with its particular brand of outrageous, hard-hitting political musical comedies, tragedies, farces, and melodramas. Speaking truth to power, giving voice to the voiceless, comforting the afflicted, afflicting the comfortable, this collection of scripts is being provided - including introductions to the plays, photos, fan quotes, and artists biographies - at price every fan, supporter, student, historian, and comrade of the Troupe can afford... FREE!
The show is FREE and the suggested donation is $20." Learn more about SFMT at: http://www.sfmt.org/index.php
The Repeal of Costa Hawkins is on the November 6th Ballot!
Join us to spread the word!
Santa Clara Greens are gearing up to campaign all the way to November both for our amazing candidates and also to REPEAL COSTA HAWKINS. The 1995 Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act (AB 1164; codified in California Civil Code Sections 1954.50) has been a disaster for rent control and renters' rights in California, it has significantly limited CA cities' ability to implement rent control and has also eliminated vacancy controls.
The Repeal, also known as the "The Affordable Housing Act” has made it to the November Ballot after many rent control advocates mounted major signature collection efforts in the last few months.
Please help us advocate for the Repeal of the Costa Hawkins Act, and share this information with your family, friends and communities.
