Thousands message Legislature on state budget

CFA members and CSU supporters have emailed and mailed California legislators by the thousands, calling for an increase in funding for the CSU beyond the 5 percent increase proposed by Gov. Brown in early January.

CFA asked members, advocates and all who support higher ed to use our “Take Action” tool to message their elected officials.

The result was inspiring.

All told, 3,736 messages were sent to legislators between Jan. 22 to Feb. 14. San Diego took the prize for the most people who sent messages!

Thanks to all who participated. Your voice and your advocacy showed state leaders that more funding for the CSU is critical to ensure the future of quality public higher education in California.
