Commemorating 20 Years of CA’s Landmark Legislation: A Celebration & Call to Action

20 Year AB 540 Highlights from Social Media
This virtual conference brought together over 1,200 educators, students, legislators, administrators, and community members from across California to celebrate the successes created through AB 540. We were thrilled to share a program that celebrated our collective successes, highlighted promising practices, and provided clear steps to expand equitable access to higher education for undocumented students in California! However, our advocacy needs to continue. Together we can build on the momentum of the conference to advocate for the equitable implementation of AB 540 across the CCCs, CSUs, and UCs.

Important Steps to Take Today!

  1. SIGN & SHARE the Commitment to Undocumented Students Pledge.
    Sign and encourage twenty individuals from your campus, organization or network to show their commitment. Add it to your newsletter, share with your task force and campus partners, or post on social media!
  2. Familiarize Yourself with the Key Discrepancies in In-State Tuition Implementation.
    Learn more about some of the barriers affecting implementation that we shared at the conference. This document will be used to guide an intrasystem working group with the CCC, CSU, and UC. Stay tuned on how you can stay involved in this process.
