Call to Action
Protect EOPS NOW!
During a recent meeting between Chancellor’s Office representatives, Regional Representatives/Coordinators, and CCCEOPSA, we were informed that the Chancellor’s Office is proposing to change the EOPS Implementing Guidelines.
Several changes have been suggested that will, in essence, dismantle many of the components that have made EOPS so successful for 50 years.
This is the time to follow the footsteps of those social justice warriors that have come before us. Will you join us?

EOPS - New Guidance DRAFT
We need your help!
The time to protect EOPS is NOW. Do not stay silent. CCCEOPSA is now asking you (Counselors, Coordinators, Directors, Deans, Staff and Students) to mobilize Statewide to protect EOPS – we owe it to future generations of trailblazers.
While more detailed action plans will be forthcoming, here is an outline of the necessary steps to protect EOPS. Please plan on the following:
Attend the EOPS Spring Training scheduled for May 1st at the Doubletree in Sacramento.
Talk with your administration about the needs to protect EOPS and protect the students we serve
Attend future Consultation Council meetings and wear EOPS clothing/signage. The schedule of meetings can be found here
Attend future Board of Governors meetings and wear EOPS clothing/signage. During BOG meetings, you are free to address the Board during public comments, we encourage you to do so. Also, please take students with you. The schedule of meetings can be found here.
Visit local legislators. I am including Talking Points shared with us by Evan Hawkins from FACCC. In it, you will find appropriate steps to contact legislators in your area.
