We are the Student of Color Solidarity Coalition (SCSC), and No 2 Napolitano is the name we chose for our campaign. As per our name, our organizing is carried out by and focuses on students of color. We came together to be heard. We reject Janet Napolitano, the process by which she was appointed, and the undemocratic UC Regent system that carried out her appointment. We understand Napolitano to be a force of privatization, securitization, and militarization. Her human rights record makes her unfit to represent the entire UC system. It is our duty as students to make sure our university is accountable to its title as a public institution. Napolitano must go.
We demand systemic change—mere replacement of the UC President will not suffice. We understand that the UC Regents system functions to further privatize California’s renowned public institution. They need to be held accountable. We can’t continue letting them do what they want with our university.
This is the medium we will use to issue political statements, communiqués, and articles on the movement.
