Californians will be deciding on the fate of twelve ballot propositions this year. And there are some biggies, including whether we should allow affirmative action in higher education, whether some cash bail should be replaced by a risk assessment system and whether Uber and Lyft drivers should be classified as independent contractors.
Haven’t studied up yet? Well, get your notepads and pencils ready—it’s time for a one-hour cram session.
Larry Mantle and a panel of expert guests will walk you through the basics of the props: what they are, the pros and cons and what’s at stake. They’ll also take your questions live.
Register for the event here and join us Tuesday, October 6 at 6:30 p.m.
