The clock is ticking. On August 1, rent was due. Now, we are 10 days away from the start of mass evictions across California. This could mean millions being pushed into homelessness and being needlessly exposed to COVID-19. Governor @GavinNewsom and the state Senate must ACT NOW to avert this disaster by passing #AB1436 and keeping Californians in their homes! #StopCOVIDEvictions #TenantTuesday

The UC has confirmed its next President, Dr. Michael V. Drake.

UCSA President Varsha Sarveshwar commented: "In a conversation with student leaders earlier today, Dr. Drake discussed his approach to many of these challenges and affirmed his commitment to equity and inclusion, to accessibility and affordability, to rethinking public safety, and to student consultation. I am hopeful that Dr. Drake will work in partnership with UCSA to follow through on these principles, and I challenge him to boldly pursue a vision for the University of California that is grounded in economic, social, and racial justice."

News like this can't wait till the morning!!!

The California Democratic Party Asian Pacific Islander Caucus is calling on our state leaders to support efforts to reinstate affirmative action.

Now is the time for our state leaders to do just that by supporting #Opportunity4All and voting YES on #ACA5

IN SUPPORT OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

The California Democratic Party Asian Pacific Islander Caucus urges legislators to take action to restore affirmative action in California. Allowing race and gender to be considered in college admissions, hiring, and government contracting levels the playing field for those who lack personal connections or face discrimination, including API students, employees, and businesses.

After Prop 209 banned affirmative action in 1996, Asian American and Pacific Islander admission rates to the University of California, including Berkeley and UCLA, went down. While the total number of API students has increased, it is at a slower rate than the increase in California's API population. Other states that continue to use affirmative action have seen faster increases.

We understand that college admissions is a sensitive issue for many immigrant communities. Being new to the country, without the connections to grow businesses, education is seen as the primary path to success. Affirmative action - especially if using disaggregated data (the API population is made up of many ethnicities and communities with very different incomes, histories, and challenges) - gives these communities a boost. It also opens additional doors through government contracting and hiring.

For these reasons, the California Democratic Party's current platform calls for the following:

- Support the re-establishment and implementation of equitable affirmative action in admissions processes at California's public universities and colleges

- Encourage, support,and defend voluntary and mandatory affirmative action measures aimed at enhancing equality in employment, education, and business opportunities

- Support review of affirmative action programs and goals that ensures the implementation and results are carefully nuanced and uses disaggregated data, particularly for the large category of Asian American and Pacific Islander (“API”)

- Support affirmative action, the rights accorded to women in Title IX, the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the U.S. Constitution

The California Student Engagement Collaborative (comprised of Student Affairs professionals from several UC, CSU, and CCC campuses) is sponsoring an exciting virtual conference focused on leadership, social justice, and advocacy education. The California Student Leadership Conference will be October 16 & 17, 2020 and registration is now open https://cslc.csudh.edu/registration/ . There is no cost for UC students to attend. Registration will close on October 16th but there a limited number of tickets. The Inaugural California Student Leadership Conference is the first two-day virtual conference that gathers college students from the University of California (UC), California State University (CSU) and California Community College (CCC) campuses for an opportunity to collectively explore and examine critical and multi-faceted topics on campus and nationally. This gathering aims to be a catalyst of dialogue, inspiration, connection and action. The theme “Rise Up” embodies the resilience and hope sewn in the fabric of higher education. “Rise Up” also captures the community spirit and commitment to transform and co-create solutions for the overwhelming challenges we currently face. We will have Alicia Garza (Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter) and Dellara Gorjian (Student Declarant, Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California) as Keynote speakers and over 35 program sessions with topics on Leadership, Social Justice, Advocacy, and much more. Alicia is offering 600 free copies of her book “The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart” to students that register, attend, and participate through the conference. These are advance copies before the book goes on sale October 20th, 2020. Our goal is to have 3000 students attend the conference and sponsoring campuses have tickets available. There will be an additional 700 Open Registration tickets that will be available to all students from the UC, CSU, and CCC campuses. Please help us spread the word to other students on your campus or other UCs about this great opportunity. For more information please visit https://cslc.csudh.edu/ or email [email protected]
