The time has come where we must ask ourselves and our legislators whether our budget reflects our goals as a state. Even with the passage of the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 budget package, we, the students of California's public higher education system, realize that this crisis is far from over and that very real threats are not far ahead. So, join us at Raley Field to begin a march to the State Capitol in Sacramento to express support for California's public higher education system. Students, faculty, staff, administrators, and all other supporters will gather on March 16th to make their voices heard. Let's KEEP THE DOORS OPEN to our colleges and universities: come support affordable, accessible, and high-quality education for all!
