On behalf of the entire NextGen Policy Team, I want to extend our best wishes for a Happy Holiday season and a prosperous New Year! I hope that you and your families find this to be a time of joy, celebration, renewal, gratitude, and reflection. 2021 – what a year it has been!
At NGP, we are so thankful for you — we look back on a productive year and realize that your support makes all the difference – the difference between an average year and a great one. And this year, thanks to you, we had a great one.
This year, we fought for — and achieved — significant progress on many of the issues we’re most passionate about: ensuring all children receive healthy, free school meals; creating the first state program in the nation to address sea level rise; establishing new rules to ensure that abusive law enforcement officers are held accountable; and securing a historic investment in funding that will connect millions more Californians to high quality, affordable broadband internet services (to name just a few).
Every single interest in the state has dedicated lobbyists — except for the public. NGP works to fill that gap and, in 2022, we plan to continue fighting for environmental justice, a more inclusive democracy, affordable housing, criminal justice reform, equity in healthcare and education, immigrant rights, and more, but we can’t do it without you. I hope you’ll consider making a donation to NextGen Policy today, so that we can keep pushing for justice and equity centered changes in 2022.
