SACRAMENTO, September 2, 2020 – Assemblymember Shirley N. Weber, PhD. (D-San Diego) applauded the California Legislature for the passage of four critical bills to move California toward greater equity and justice.
SACRAMENTO – California Governor Gavin Newsome has signed AB 1460, legislation that would require students at California State University (CSU) campuses to fulfill three units from courses in African American, Asian American, Latino/a or Native American studies.
After 18 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Jeremy Puckett becomes first exoneree in the country to move into a home with help from the State. Sacramento Kings and other local businesses welcome Jeremy home.
AB 1460: California State University: Graduation Requirement: Ethnic Studies passed in the California State Senate with a vote of 30–5. AB 1460 requires undergraduates to complete a minimum of one three-unit course in Ethnic Studies to graduate, effective beginning with students graduating in the 2024–25 academic year. The three-unit Ethnic Studies requirement would pose few challenges for students who are already charged to complete 120 units to graduate, as many Ethnic Studies courses already fulfill pre-existing GE requirements.
