    “Join LUPE Tucson and Tucson SURJ for a canvassing day to defeat Proposition 101!

    Proposition 101 is a proposed city sales tax, that would result in $75 million revenue for police over the next five years. That’s a flat tax that disproportionately impacts poor people and people of color to fund police who target these very communities. It’s at the expense of funding services and transportation that would actually make Tucson better for all of us.

    We will have water, snacks and all canvassing materials available. Meet at the Northwest Corner of the Safeway parking lot on Silverbell and St. Mary’s at 9:30 am. Bring a friend!

    Please join us to knock on some doors and get out the word to VOTE NO ON PROP 101!”[%7B%5C%22surface%5C%22%3A%5C%22page%5C%22%2C%5C%22mechanism%5C%22%3A%5C%22page_upcoming_events_card%5C%22%2C%5C%22extra_data%5C%22%3A[]%7D]%22%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D
