Education is a human right - everyone deserves quality education, no matter their status, income or race. KRC is pushing a bill that will allow more immigrant undocumented students to pay in-state tuition in colleges. (AB1620). Immigrant parents and young people participate in the bill’s first hearing in Sacramento on April 23 to make our voices heard and to share our stories with legislators. The measure passed the Higher Education Subcommittee by a 9 to 2 vote.
Assemblymembers Miguel Santiago of Koreatown, Sharon Quirk-Silva of Fullerton, and Wendy Carrillo of East LA have introduced the bill. Please sign our online petition at bit.ly/supportab1620 so that we can move the bill in the legislature and is signed by the governor!
