-FAX AND CALL Governor Gray Davis AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
Here’s the deal:
The state legislature is on the verge of deciding UC’s Outreach budget. If Outreach is not fully funded, Student Initiated Outreach is first on the list to get axed. There are 2 versions of
this budget. The Senate version only partially funds Outreach, but the Assembly version fully funds Outreach. Please FAX and CALL the Governor to urge him to FULLY FUND OUTREACH!
Its sooo easy! Attached is a fill in the blank letter (Thanks Peter Gee!) to fax.
1) Identify yourself and organization you represent.
2) Say “I urge Governor Davis to support the State Assembly Version of the Budget which fully restores outreach funding.
3) Thank you.

If it had not been for the Youth and Community Outreach Programs at UCR or the people who worked for the program, I would be naive about myself, my culture, and the issues Asian Americans and Asian American teens face in current society and what we went through in earlier society. Therefore, I encourage all those who believe in positive learning, cultural gain of any kind, and the power one person does to please call Gov. Gray Davis. It's one thing to cut back on educational funds, but to wipeout the outreach budget. There are hundreds of teens and young college students in California whose lives have changed through the API Outreach, Hispanic Outreach, African Outreach that UC campuses offer to them!! Outreach programs are a learning experience that should never be pased up!! Please support and save the Outreach budget!
