To observe this national day of service, the 9/11 Day organization leads a coordinated effort throughout the country to help Americans put aside any differences, join together in unity, and spend time engaging in charitable service, volunteering, or doing good deeds during the day for others. As a proud 9/11 Day partner, we invite you to join individuals across the country in pledging to do at least one good deed on or around 9/11.

After spending almost half a million dollars to place Proposition K on the ballot, the measure’s proponents—affordable housing organization TODCO and its director, John Elberling—sought the court’s approval to remove the tax measure from the November ballot.

Despite the judge’s decision to toss the measure, critics say the Proposition K diabolical highlights the complicated yet absurd nature of the City’s ballot measure process that allows political interest groups to place poorly written measures on the ballot.
