We Asked Congress to Support the American Dream & Promise Act, and They Listened. Next up: Senate.
If signed into law, Dreamers, recipients of Temporary Protected Status and Deferred Enforced Departure can have the certainty of a future they deserve. UC urges the Senate to swiftly take up the legislation and send it to the president for his signature.

Our Areas of Focus
Guidelines for Advocacy
As a 501(c)(3) and a state entity, there are legal restrictions on the types of political activities UCSF employees can engage in on behalf of UCSF. Follow these do’s and don’ts for advocacy in your UCSF and personal capacities.
UC Advocacy Network
UCSF also is part of the UC Advocacy Network, which engages community members to help highlight the impact of UC's contributions to government officials and policymakers in Sacramento and Washington D.C. Stay informed about issues relevant to the UC system.
