Black Public Officials
Reception & Forum

We are holding this event to recognize Black Public Officials within the Inland Empire as well as celebrate participants who have successfully completed BLU Educational Foundation's Institute for Civic Engagement - Public Officials Training.

#Allin4FinancialAid

This proposal is an important step towards ensuring equitable access to postsecondary education. In 2020, only 54% of California’s graduating senior class completed the FAFSA or CADAA.

 

Fewer high school students are filling out the FAFSA as compared to last year, and high schools that serve a majority of Black and Latinx students have even lower FAFSA completion rates. 

 

The Governor’s proposal will increase low-income students’ access to the in-depth support needed to complete these forms
