This fall Design Action Collective supported a number of electoral campaigns in Oakland and San Francisco. Measure FF in Oakland would lift up the minimum wage to $12.25/hr. Prop G in San Francisco would reign in real-estate speculators from evicting people and driving up rental units. And Prop J in SF would increase the minimum wage to $15/hr.
During this election season we did design work for the Yes on G campaign as well as building the website for Families for an Affordable SF, an independent expenditure campaign of labor and community organizations who are campaigning for props G and J, as well as for David Campos for State Assembly.
