General Information


About the Virtual Conference:

For the past several years, the Affordability, Food, and Housing Access Taskforce and the #RealCollegeCalifornia Coalition have gathered together students, practitioners, and reform advocates for an annual summit to discuss high impact practices that address affordability, housing, and food insecurity concerns. 

For too long, California Community College students have been under-funded and under-resourced, resulting in disproportionately high levels of food insecurity, homelessness, and poverty. The growing income gap and systemic patterns of racism have become a central social justice and moral dilemma facing our colleges. The 2022 conference will address questions such as: How are we going to ensure that our students are housed and fed? How can we convince policymakers and change agents that food, housing, and meeting basic needs are fundamental rights for everyone? How are we implementing changes within our own institutions? How can we become better at addressing this critical moral dilemma?
