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!

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.
