ACCJC, TREAT OUR COLLEGES FAIRLY!
Rally and press conference
Friday, June 5th at 1pm
Hilton Oakland Airport Hotel

ACCJC will host meetings at this hotel on June 3, 4, 5. Legislation is being sent now to the Assembly that will reform ACCJC accreditation practices. This event is to raise awareness and put pressure on key legislators to consider passing this legislation for a fair accreditation process for all community colleges. The ACCJC treats California’s Community colleges unfairly and this harms thousands of students. California’s State Superior Court ruled that the ACCJC broke the law when it tried to close City College of San Francisco and the Department of Education criticized the ACCJC for its treatment of our California community colleges. The California Federation of Teachers, the City College faculty union and other supporters from across California have been fighting for fair accreditation reforms. We are holding a protest and press conference outside of the ACCJC’s next meeting. Please join us!
