Grants to this Grantee
for strengthening state policy and local implementation of California’s school accountability system  
Public Advocates is a nonprofit law firm and advocacy organization. With this grant, Public Advocates will assist local community and district efforts to effectively implement the new accountability system for the neediest students. Public Advocates will provide positive examples of how the accountability system is helping students, which will encourage state policymakers to maintain and improve it.
for the Metropolitan Equity Team  
Public Advocates focuses on increasing public transit, affordable housing, and environmental justice in the Bay Area by working at the local, regional, and state level. This grant will complement a set of grants focused on Bay Area implementation of SB 375 (California’s policy for urban planning that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions). During this grant period, Public Advocates will encourage Congestion Management Agencies to increase investment in transit service levels and expanded ridership. This is particularly important for the region’s residents who cannot afford to purchase a car and are dependent on public transportation.
