The Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC) Board of Directors supported Proposition 15, a ballot measure heading to the November 2020 ballot that seeks to raise needed revenue to invest in schools and vital services for communities across the state. Proposition 15, also known as the Schools & Communities First Initiative, will be a key component to the state’s recovery and reinvestment, delivering nearly $500 million each year to California’s community colleges. This ballot measure is extremely important particularly given the budget cuts because of the Covid-19 pandemic.  

The SSCCC understands the importance of this ballot measure and is pleased to provide a series of tools and materials to inform and support your local advocacy or support of this important ballot measure.
