Students Fighting for Education Equality
2022 Policy Celebration
2023 Policy Celebration 🎉
In October, Generation Up hosted a Zoom call celebration to congratulate and thank everyone for all the hard work that was put into our advocacy this year. We gathered to celebrate the 28 bills that we either wrote or co-sponsored that were signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom, and three more bills passed in the state budget. Six of our very own student-written GENup bills were also signed into law, three of which were featured by Governor Newsom as a way to exemplify and uplift student and youth voices in California!

On March 16th, 2022, GENup hosted a policy slate unveiling where we announced the five bills that were written by GENup and introduced to the legislature for this 2022-2023 cycle! We are so honored that California Secretary of State Dr. Shirley Weber, Chair of the Senate Education Committee Senator Connie Leyva, longest-serving President of the California State Board of Education Dr. Mike Kirst, and over thirteen current State Assembly Members and Senators were able to speak at our event.
GENup 2021 in Review
As we look forward into 2022, we hope that you will continue to join us in fighting for lasting change that improves the education system in California and nationwide. We are so proud of what we have built thus far, but we still have a long way to go. Onwards to a new year: the same priorities, but with a new vision, and a rejuvenated youth-led movement ready to change our nation’s diverse education system for the better.

This year, 19 bills on our policy slate were SIGNED INTO LAW! State Superintendent Tony Thurmond, civil rights icon Dr. Karen Korematsu, and Assemblymember Jose Medina joined us at our virtual banquet to celebrate these accomplishments. Check out our celebration and speakers below!
