CALL TO ACTION: Help Homeless Students Get Permanently Housed by asking lawmakers to support AB 2784
There is a homelessness crisis for college students in the CSU. 10.9% of our students face homelessness, with 18% of our 1st generation students, and African American students facing homelessness.
Currently there is a bill, AB 2784 by Assemblywoman Caballero, to pilot a rapid rehousing program on three CSU campuses, that would help our neediest students become permanently housed, so they can focus on their coursework.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
This Tuesday, the Assembly Budget Subcommittee will be making final choices on their budget recommendations. Funding for this bill may be one of those choices, but we need our Assemblymembers to know this is a priority!
Over the course of this weekend, these final decisions will be made. We need to let these members know that they should making funding for this bill a priority.
Help us by sharing a tweet that will raise the visibility of this issue, and hopefully, get our students the funding they need to succeed!
