Your advocacy goes a long way. Thank you for using your voice to keep California strong!

Our voices are powerful. UC advocates contacted state lawmakers more than 2,000 times encouraging their support for a budget plan that provides historical investments in UC.

We’re grateful that the Governor and Legislature are proposing restoring significant cuts made to UC last year, along with providing UC additional ongoing and one-time funding. These investments are critical as the UC community continues to recover from the pandemic and furthers our focus on closing student equity gaps, supporting staff and faculty, repairing aging campus buildings, and providing equitable health care.

So what’s next? Now that the Legislative budget committees have passed their proposed budget, negotiations will continue with Governor Newsom as they work to reach a final agreement by June 15, 2021.

Thanks to your advocacy, we’re getting close to reaching our goal of securing a strong state budget for UC. Thank you for standing up for UC and for working with us to help California recover.
