The morning after…

After spending a night of constructive dialogue in the Ethnic Resource Center the group of students who had retreated the the previous day left early in the morning, respectful of the space, making sure it was left how it was found.
They proceeded to march to Kerr Hall, decorating the outside with the principles of: Democracy, Representation and Accountability.
Following the decoration of Kerr Hall Alma Sifuentes(Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean of Students) and Felicia McGinty (Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs) came out to speak with students.
After a long dialogue of the situation, it was expressed by a student that “we intend to change the relationship that the University has with us as students by participating both institutionally and autonomously. Our actions will continue to be a reminder of this commitment”.
After the demonstration was made, students concluded by taking down the signs in solidarity with workers. Students will be supporting the workers demonstration on March 16 at the Quarry Plaza 3-5.

About UCSC Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES)

This blog is maintained by students throughout UCSC. We recognize that students have been working around Ethnic Studies for multiple decades and at many levels of the university. We claim no ownership over any movement or material that is produced. We ask that any materiel used from the blog is cited and used for only educational purposes. Most importantly that it is done with honor and respect for the many people who worked in the struggle for Ethnic Studies. We would also like to point out that the name Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) was created to acknowledge the intellectual development of Ethnic Studies since the beginning of this struggle. The name came from countless meetings and hours with many different undergrads, graduate students, and faculty.
