This comic is very problematic as it glosses over the fact that the County was already organizing a ballot measure with a group of BIPOC parents and providers, and that effort was being led by a woman of color. DSA, a White-led and predominantly White membership organization, knew of this effort and forged ahead with their own initiative anyway (largely copied from the County's measure). They were lucky that the Preschool for All campaign and County were willing to merge proposals and combine efforts when it became clear that the DSA proposal was not fiscally possible. Glossing over all of this is another act of White supremacy that the Portland Chapter of DSA needs to be held accountable for.
