CSU Students started this petition to Governor Gavin Newsom

Dear Governor Newsom,

We are current students in the California State University system and we are writing to you to urge you to veto AB 1460 if it reaches your desk in favor of Chancellor White’s alternative proposal that was adopted by the Board of Trustees.

Chancellor White’s proposal is: 

  • Inclusive. The broadened definition of Ethnic Studies allows us to include other ethnic groups who reside here in California, including Armenians, Arabs, Jews, and South Asians.
  • Expansive. By expanding the graduation requirement to include courses in social justice, the alternative proposal recognizes contemporary struggles including those of women and the LGBTQ community. 
  • Flexible. The original bill required that students take courses offered by only a few specific departments or programs, but the alternative proposal gives students choice. 

As students, we are grateful for Chancellor White’s leadership on this issue and urge you to veto AB 1460 if it reaches your desk and accept the alternative proposal.
