It’s that time of year again. Back to school means hitting the campus bookstore for new textbooks.

Unfortunately, we’re about to get hit with the annual sticker shock of high textbook prices. $200 for one book? Outrageous.

Here’s the deal: we can stand up to high prices and help change the textbook industry. It won’t be easy, but we’re making progress.

WANTED: Summer Staff and Interns


Even though finals are upon us, our work to fight global warming and protect public health is just ramping up.  Yesterday, the California senate approved the Charge Ahead California bill for a Million Clean Cars to help California lead in the fight against global warming. The bill now heads to the Assembly. Standing up to opposition from oil companies and special interests, on this and other issues, is going to take ongoing student action throughout the summer.  We're looking for staff, interns and volunteers to join this and other campaign efforts for the summer.

Sign up to volunteer or intern this summer!

The public supports taking strong action to fight global warming, now we need to make sure our elected officials listen. I hope you join us this summer!
