Please join us on Saturday, March 15 at 10 am to work on AB 2464, the Migrant Education Bill. We will need to work with great dedication after that point, and we are working behind the scenes now (with Paul Fong's office, the Castellanos Family Foundation (CFF), on the intern job description, etc.) so that we have a foundation to move forward quickly after March 15.
Please save the date and the time at the address of Human Agenda, below.
Thank you for your interest in working on this bill.
Richard Hobbs, Human Agenda 2175 The Alameda, Suite 103 San Jose, CA 95126
