Santa Cruz Opt Out and STOP Deportations NOW!

We need students to attend Santa Cruz City Council meeting in support of AB 1081 (TRUST Act). The council will be voting to Otp Out of the “Secure Communities” (S-Comm) deportation program. It is important that students show up in numbers.We can not allow the police force to become a branch of ICE. S-Comm is misleading for a number of reasons. One of the issues around S-Comm is it will further stop residents from relaying or working with the police because they fear deportation. This fear is not what we want or need in our communities.

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.
