7:00 p.m.

Hundreds of low-income Los Angeles residents will gather at “Schatzi on Main” to protest Governor Schwarzenegger’s plans to cut childcare and CALWORKS funding for California’s working families.

The candlelight vigil of working families and their children will surround the Governor’s restaurant and demand that Schwarzenegger stop “catering to the rich by stealing from the poor”.

The protestors are part of The California Partnership, a coalition of over 70 community and faith-based organizations and low-income people that has been protesting the Governor’s proposed 2004 budget, declaring that it protects wealthy Californians by cutting services to low-income families who need them the most.

The California Partnership has organized protests across the state to demand the Governor reverse his plans to cut funding for childcare and CALWORKS, two programs that allow poor Californians to move off welfare and stay employed.

- Working families and their children who will be affected
by the cuts will be available for interviews in English and Spanish -
