Schools & Communities First

After one of the most successful signature gathering campaigns in California history, attention now turns to the “Vote Yes on Schools & Communities First” campaign. A large component of the campaign will be the age old act of storytelling – something to help voters connect with and understand why Schools & Communities First will benefit them. The stories illustrate how schools and community services impact the lives of everyday people, make the case for investing in public health and schools, and inspire Californians with the message that we are all in this together.

Here is where League members can help. Tell your own stories about your contact with local services and education and why you support Schools & Communities First. Find others who can tell stories. Ask them to participate. 

The campaign has set up a toolkit to help us. Take a look at the what, why, and how of storytelling in this context. Here are some sample stories and more samples using a COVID-19 theme. As you see, the stories are short and personal. They can be written or on video. Check this site to see how it’s done.
