SOCC Petition (online at unionvoice)

By signing this petition, I stand in solidarity with all of the demands presented by the Student Of Color Collective. We know that the University of California Santa Cruz has the means to meet these demands by the end of spring quarter of 2008-2009 and we expect these demands to be enacted immediately:

-Maintain academic integrity and current structure of Community Studies Dept. by keeping field study coordinators Mike Rotkin and Flor Marchetti and Department Manager Penny Stinson and not merging the department into Sociology.
-Retain both Latin American and Latino Studies lecturers Guillermo Delgado and Susan Jonas
-Make UCSC a sanctuary campus for undocumented communities
-UCSC openly and publicly support the state and Federal DREAM Act
-Permanent funding for Ethnic- Year-End Ceremonies from college C.A.O.s and Provosts
-Support Family Student Housing in receiving equitable rent for next year 09-10 funding (no rent increase)
-Fair transparent negotiations with workers and unions to ensure equitable pay, working condition and representation
-No layoffs!
-No worker deportations by ICE
-Freeze on Budget Cuts over the summer, while students are not present

(special thanks to Shaun and the rest of USAS)
