2020 Legislative Wins

“At its heart, the policy and advocacy work of NextGen California is focused on the needs of California’s most vulnerable and impacted communities — and the COVID crisis clearly reminds us of its critical importance.  I am proud to say that with your support, our team at NextGen California remained steadfast in our mission to advance progressive initiatives that support a fair, equitable, and prosperous California for all. This year, we helped pass groundbreaking legislation that provides new consumer protections for student loan borrowers; lowers prescription drug costs; holds for-profit detention centers accountable for human rights abuses; and addresses many other pressing environmental and social justice issues. I invite you to explore what we’ve accomplished together this year and hope you continue to join us in creating a California that embraces all those who call this state home.”  – Arnold Sowell Jr., Executive Director
