East Bay Citizens for Action

Committee Mission

This group of activists joined the Wellstone Club as a committee in 2012 to engage in various progressive mobilizations.

In January 2013, we decided to focus on Proposition 13 commercial property tax reform. We are now gathering signatures to put on the 2018 ballot an initiative constitutional amendment providing that commercial property shall be reassessed regularly, not just when sold.

We will be canvassing door-to- door and at high-traffic public spaces to gather as many signatures as possible and to educate voters about the initiative.

Wellstone members who want to help should email Kitty Calavita at kccalavi@uci.edu.
