ACTION: Call Mayor Coonerty; Plus Video of Classroom Takeover

Mayor Ryan Coonerty of Santa Cruz refused to listen to the community and did not vote for the Trust Act. The Trust Act would have allowed Santa Cruz to Opt-Out of S-COMM. The S-COMM program has come under heavy criticism across the country where the State of Illinois and the State of New York has suspended it.  S-COMM, also know as “secure communities” makes no one safer and targets and threatens innocent  immigrant communities with mass deportation.

Last week 50 activist, including the Brown Berets took over Mayor Coonerty’s classroom where he teaches a class called “Democracy and the Law” at UCSC. The Brown Berets read a statement to Mayor Coonerty and allowed for the Mayor to respond. In his response he blamed President Obama and  Kamala Harris.

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.
