UCLA Occupiers Fighting to Double Underrepresented Enrollment at the University of California

 

On Friday, June 1, 2012, several dozen students and civil rights activists participated in a BAMN-organized occupation of the UCLA admissions office to demand:

  • Double Latina/o, black and other underrepresented minority student enrollment
  • Admit more Latina/o, black, and other underrepresented minority students including some of the students we are submitting (on appeal).
  • Reopen the Appeals process to allow the more than deserving Latina/o, black, Native American and other underrepresented minority who have been denied once or twice already the chance to be reconsidered.

Below, at the By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) website, are some of the inspiring statements made during the occupation:  http://www.bamn.com/social-justice/video-ucla-occupiers-speak-out
