Fighting for Free College

Communities for Our Colleges (C4C), a project of the Alliance for a Just Society, is a multiracial student-centered campaign in Washington State that works to improve the state’s community colleges by engaging students, faculty, staff and the community to advocate for improved funding, access, and racial equity. 

Time for Free College Town Hall

A recent town hall meeting featuring Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, State Senator Marko Liias, and students from across Washington State urged lawmakers to make college cost-free.

Free College

Community college should be free. It’s as simple as that. It is an investment in Washington’s future. Fact is, free college is good for students, good for communities, and good for our economy.
