This year, Californians will head to the polls to elect officials who make decisions that impact UC, like the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, and the State Superintendent of Instruction, who are UC Regents.

UC Regents have the power to influence our contract fight, and with our fight heating up, it is now more important than ever that we register to vote and make sure our allies are in those seats come November 6th.

Your Political Action Committee has endorsed the following candidates because they have proven records of standing with working people and will support our fight for a just contract!
