(This Wednesday) Let’s make Free City College REAL!
San Francisco must set the example and ensure access to quality education: we need Free City College! for our City, its residents, and for our CCSF. With skyrocketing housing prices and high student debt, students often face choices between enrollment and rent, between textbooks and groceries.
Join us this Wednesday from 11am to 12:30pm to tell the Board of Supervisors Budget Committee that it’s essential to seed the Free City College Initiative now for Fall 2017! Please RSVP, invite, and join us!
San Franciscans overwhelming passed Prop W to fund the Free City College initiative, and already the rumors are flying that some in city government want to use the money for other things. Voters have shown they want to protect City College and expand access to higher education—join us to tell them they cannot abandon that promise!
“‘The overwhelming majority of the Board of Supervisors have already made their commitment to funding free City College given the passage of new revenue and … I expect we will be funding a free City College in August 2017,’ said Supervisor Jane Kim, who championed the idea.”
