Cal Advocacy

The Cal Alumni Association is ready to stand up for Cal. To help keep Berkeley strong for years to come, CAA is relaunching its Cal Advocacy program. CAA is dedicated to reminding local, state, and federal leaders about the important role the University serves in your life and community. We need you as a Cal Advocate — click below to join.

By registering, you’ll be one of the first to know about legislative issues affecting Berkeley and will have the chance to tell your elected leaders why Cal matters. Your individual stories will be a powerful voice for Berkeley as our leaders make decisions that matter to all former, current, and future Golden Bears.
