Thought that I would let you know that SB-309 sponsored by State Senator Connie Leyva, which the College for All Coalition (of which the LRT has been part of), passed through the state legislative budget with an allocation of $500 million to ensure College readiness and assuring that schools advance student completion of A-G requirements. Thank you to our LRT College for All group that met with legislators on this bill (and others) during advocacy week. This is a good example of how we can connect our local organizing efforts to training and outreach that results in positive outcomes.
