Peralta Colleges’ Chancellor, José M. Ortiz, led a delegation this week to Washington, D.C., to discuss educational issues with the nation’s lawmakers. 

In this photo, Peralta’s delegation met Congresswoman Barbara Lee (California’s 13th Congressional District) in the Longworth House Office Building where the Congresswoman was attending a Workforce and Education Committee hearing. Pictured from left, Trustee Bill Withrow, Trustee Meredith Brown, Congresswoman Lee, Chancellor Ortiz, Trustee Linda Handy and Trustee Cy Gulassa.

Peralta’s delegation asked lawmakers to change work study formulas to be fair and equitable, to support successful “wrap-around” services for students, for Congress to expand programs for Asian American, Native American Pacific and Hispanic-serving institutions, and to allow colleges to use tax exempt funding practices to keep pace with infrastructure needs.
