June 5 Primary is already underway—help elect pro-higher education candidates

Vote-By-Mail ballots are already arriving at voters’ homes, meaning the June 5 California Primary is already underway. Join with our colleagues to campaign for public higher education.

“The CSU benefits, our students are better off, and we are able to deliver the best possible education when the university is properly funded and education policies make sense,” says Lillian Taiz, CFA Political Action and Legislation Chair.

“To get there, we need people in Sacramento who understand the needs of the People’s University,” Taiz adds.

Phone banks and precinct walks are underway in many key districts. Just sign-up here to take political action.

SEE CFA’S ENDORSED CANDIDATES: CFA chapters on the 23 CSU campuses interview candidates and make endorsement recommendations to the CFA Political Action Committee and then CFA’s Board of Directors.

Two of CFA’s most significant endorsements are Gavin Newsom for Governor, and Tony Thurmond for Superintendent of Public Instruction. Newsom spent eight years as an ex-officio CSU Trustee and strongly advocates for our students and faculty on the board. Tony Thurman also has been a staunch supporter of higher education during his time in the Assembly.

REGISTER TO VOTE • LAST DAY MAY 21: If you have moved, you need to register to vote, and it can be done entirely online on the Secretary of State’s web page. Urge others who support public higher education to register to vote as well by sharing the link.
