Central Valley Latinos Speak Out Against Prop 32 and Its Arizona Influence

would be devastating to all Californians who believe workers need a voice in politics to balance out the corporate greed and excess that’s squeezing the middle class. But Prop 32 would be particularly tough on California’s Latinos, who make up more than one-third of California’s population.

By scamming California voters into giving unfair and dangerous influence to its billionaire backers, Prop 32 would exacerbate the problems that already plague California’s Latino communities (and, in fact, ALL California communities), including ballooning class sizes in our schools, fewer police and firefighters on our streets and dwindling access to health care. The Prop 32 backers also oppose comprehensive immigration reform that would make the American Dream more attainable for immigrant families.
