Join the CA EDGE Coalition and the Skills for CA Network in advocating for critical investments that strengthen education, training, and workforce development initiatives and advance economic mobility in communities historically left out of California’s prosperity.

June 2023:

SB 467 by Senator Portantino will be heard in the Assembly Higher Education Committee on Tuesday, June 13th and we need your support!

SB 467 (Portantino) would prohibit a student from being denied admission to a community college apprenticeship or internship training program regardless of their immigration status. This legislation is critical to remove barriers for undocumented students who are enrolled in our workforce development and career technical education programs throughout the community college system. View factsheet here.

We urge you to join us in support of SB 467 and submit a letter on behalf of your organization.

Support letters must be submitted TODAY Wednesday, June 7th.
