A HUGE thank you to The Education Trust - West for awarding EMAC a Communities Organizing for Racial Equity in Education (CORE) Collective grant! This funding will help EMAC’s work to expand access to #highereducation for students who are currently or formerly incarcerated and help us continue to support our work to protect #EthnicStudies!

The CORE Collective Program is designed for grassroots organizations that serve and empower students, parents, families, and communities most affected by racialized opportunity and investment gaps in California’s education systems, spanning early learning and care, K-12 education, and higher education.

The Harmonizing Our Measures for Equality (#HOMEact) #AB1306 by Assemblymember Wendy Carillo (@AsmCarrillo) is launching today! Community members who have earned release under these existing reforms should be able to return HOME, reunite with their families, and rebuild their lives instead of being cruelly transferred to ICE. This is an issue of equality and fairness.

Watch and listen to learn how we can advance equal justice for immigrant Californians. Speakers include community leaders Tin Nguyen (VietRISE), Sandra Castaneda, Phil Melendez (Smart Justice), Assemblymember Carrillo and other legislators including Sen. Bradford and Asm. Kalra. Watch now at:
