Timely Request: Support The GAINS For Student Parents Act By June 7

/

In case you missed it, California Competes joined forces with EdTrust-West to launch the California Alliance for Student Parent Success (The Alliance), a coalition committed to supporting the postsecondary success and wellbeing of student parents and their families.

Our first bill with The Alliance, the GAINS for Student Parents Act (AB 2458), passed through the Assembly with unanimous support and now makes it way to the Senate.

Will you join us in supporting the GAINS for Student Parents Act? There are three ways you can help:

  1. Organizations can submit a letter of support by this Friday, June 7, 2024. Not part of an organization? Students and children of student parents can show their individual support here and faculty can show their support here.
  2. Join us in Sacramento for the hearing and provide public comment next Wednesday, June 12, 2024. The hearing starts at 9:00 a.m. in Room 2100 at the Capitol. Let California Competes Policy Director AJ Johnson know if you’ll be attending by emailing .
  3. Thank the Assembly and Senate champions for their leadership on social media by liking and sharing these posts.
