- In November, UC launched a letter-writing campaign to the governor with our e-advocates, encouraging him to support the Regents' budget requests for 2010-11. Our e-advocates sent more than 3,400 e-mails to the governor. A follow-up appeal currently is in the works to encourage even more advocates to take action, who have not yet done so.
- Also in November, launched the "All Together Now" campaign and ran ads in the campus student newspapers and on Facebook encouraging more students, alumni, faculty and staff to join the UC advocacy effort. In just a few short weeks, more than3,000 people signed up as new e-advocates and the Facebook ads were seen 30 million times by people identified in their Facebook profiles as either UC students or UC alumni.
- We are updating and reinvigorating our advocacy website, www.ucforcalifornia.org, to make it more compelling, to offer more resources and to expand our e-advocacy database.
- UC has been providing informational updates to a network of e-advocates -- alumni and friends of UC -- who sign up as part of the UC for California Network to stay informed about UC policy priorities and then have the opportunity to email elected representatives in Sacramento about those issues.
