Chabot Justice Arts Collective
Video Featured by Democracy Now!
The Chabot College Justice Arts Collective was contacted by Democracy Now!, an independent news source, which aired the music video RU Listenin'? on August 26th.

RU Listenin'? was written, performed, and filmed by the Chabot Justice Arts Collective students, employees, and community members. The video asks viewers to listen to the pain and resilience of people in communities most disproportionately affected by systemic racism, anti-blackness, and police brutality. Check-out the Justice Arts Collective's video here:

Community Resources
Chabot College has developed a guide for on-campus and community resources, such as childcare, food, healthcare, housing, senior services, and more. Check-out the link below for the complete listing of resources:

CalWORKs: Services for Student Parents- childcare, books & supplies
Are you, or someone you know, a parent considering taking college courses at Chabot? You may be eligible to receive public assistance, such as cash aid (TANF/CalWORKs), that will allow you to participate in the CalWORKs program.
CalWORKS covers the cost of childcare, books and supplies, and transportation for FREE!

The CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids) provides temporary financial assistance and employment-focused services to families with minor children who have income and assets below state limits for their family size.
The CalWORKs program at the community college is intended to help students meet their Welfare-To-Work requirements and prepare for permanent jobs in their chosen profession. We provide a variety of support services to help students successfully complete a certificate, AA or AS while also meeting their county CalWORKs requirements.
