The "March In March" Event A Success for California Students

On March 16th, students from all sectors of California's public school systems came together to fight the fee increases that the Community Colleges, California State Universities, and the University of California school system face for the upcoming year. Thousands of students marched on the State Capitol in Sacramento, California to protest the State's cut on education funding. The "March in March: Rescue Education" event, sponsored by the Student Senate for California Community Colleges, included many administration, faculty, and student organizations from across the State of California coming together to make their voice heard in Sacramento.

Here is a video promoting the event:
