Cailyn, extending thanks to the Michelson 20MM Foundation for sponsoring the OEGlobal 2021 online conference. We appreciate your support for our work and the work of so many others in the open education space.

OEGlobal was particularly delighted to be an advocate and signatory supporter around efforts to secure California government funding for Zero Textbook Cost degrees for California Community College students. Absolutely fantastic that the initial effort to get $15 million eventually led to $115 million!

It is also great to see the recent Michelson 20MM Foundation Spark Grant awards that continue to work toward addressing college textbook affordability.

And we congratulate you on bringing on our longstanding friend and colleague James Glapa-Grossklag as an OER Fellow.

So great to be partners in these collaborative efforts in support of open education.
