Jan Goodman, longtime board member of ADASoCal, says, “The Garden Party, occurring just before the November elections, aims to focus on some of the most vital issues on the ballot:  The bold plan to create a public bank as an alternative to Wells Fargo and other banking predators that crashed our economy (Measure B--City of L.A.), and the struggle to protect Californians from skyrocketing rents and make housing affordable again (Prop 10). These issues have been percolating for a long time, tended by long laboring hands. However, Bernie Sanders planted many progressive seeds and younger activists from his movement have become some of the key people working on some of the hottest issues on the ballot. The warriors in these battles are diverse, inter-generational, highly motivated, and worthy of recognition.”
