Volunteer with Yes on E

Mon-Sun, Now – Nov 6, 5-8pm
Various Locations

This November, San Francisco voters have an opportunity to invest in the future of arts and culture in San Francisco by voting Yes on Prop E. Without raising taxes or taking existing funding away from municipal allocations, Prop E will bolster arts and culture funding citywide – doubling arts funding in San Francisco over the next ten years. But this measure requires 67% of San Francisco voters to say Yes on E, and your help is needed to make this happen!

Volunteering is easy and makes a huge impact on the campaign! You can join Yes on E by volunteering at phone and text banking sessions Monday through Thursday 5 – 8 PM at locations like The Stud and Code & Canvas, and/or by knocking on doors on Saturday and Sunday day with the Yes on E team!

Check out the calendar for a full list of volunteer opportunities and sign up to volunteer at www.artsforeveryonesf.com.
