March 3, 2008 -- Community College Funding Crisis

Both the Governor's January Budget proposal and the defeat of  Proposition 92 have put necessary state funding for California Community Colleges in jeopardy. We all need to make the case that this  funding is essential for us to do our job of preparing the California  workforce of the 21st century. Eliminating college opportunity is not  the way to fix the state's fiscal shortfall.

Contact the Governor and your representatives in the Assembly and  State Senate. Tell them to support California Community Colleges, and  tell them why. Click here for a sample letter that you can download. You can find the contact information for your  representatives below. Find out who is your Assembly member at http://www.assembly.ca.gov/ (click "Find my District") and who is your State Senator at http://www.senate.ca.gov/~newsen/senators/districtmaps.HTP (click "Your Senator").
