ReFund California

AWDU has partnered with ReFund California, a broad coalition of workers, students, teachers, and community organizers to make the banks pay to ReFund education. We chose to work with ReFund California because we think their political analysis is spot on: it was Wall Street banks and the corporate elite that put our state and, hence, our public education system, in this crisis. It is they – not students and our families – who should pay to clean up this mess. It doesn’t help matters that the UC Regents are themselves bankers and corporate elite.

As part of ReFund California, we pledge the following:

1) Increase taxes on the 1%

2) Close the corporate property tax loopholes

3) Tax Wall Street financial transactions

4) Fix the housing crisis

5) Reverse tuition increases and cuts to education and services
