It was so inspiring to be at the rally on Monday. There were almost 100 people there – many of them parents who have learned to advocate for themselves and their children as a result of the work of grant partners Parent Voices and Lifetime.
Senator Kevin deLeon, Senator Carol Liu, Assemblymember Holly Mitchell, Assemblymember Mariko Yamada, Assemblymember Bonnie Lowenthal and Chancellor Jack Scott attended and spoke very movingly about the importance of community colleges, CalWORKS and childcare to helping families to be economically self-sufficient and powerful role models for their children and communities.
