Urge Gov. Brown to Support and Pass AB131

On Monday, July 25th Governor Brown signed the first portion of the CA Dream Act and emphasized the importance to ensure that "every child that lives and is born in California" has equal access to higher education "because people are what drive the culture of the economy in our country."

On October 2nd, 2010, in the city of Freson, California, Univision hosted a Gubernatorial debate in Spanish language media between Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman. A student from CSU Fresno asked Jerry Brown if he would support the Dream Act as Governor of California, and candidate Brown responded "Yes to the Federal DREAM Act, which I can't do anything about except for advocate and YES to the State Dream Act which I can do something about because our current Governor just vetoed a proposal. I would have signed that bill."

We are all on this together and we need to remind Governor Brown about his promise to sign the FULL CA Dream Act (AB130 + AB131) into law.

Call Gov. Brown at (916) 445-2841 and devliver the following message:

"Hello, my name is ____________ and I would like to thank Gov. Brown for signing AB130 into law. However, more doors would open to AB540 students if AB131 is signed into law. I urge Governor Brown to support equal access to higher education for ALL, and support and sign AB131."
