Support the Feminist COLA Fund

March 02, 2020

On Friday, February 28, 2020, four graduate students in the Feminist Studies Ph.D. Program at the University of California-Santa Cruz were fired by the university for advocating for a living wage. We seek immediate support to fight back against this act of political repression by the UCSC administration, which unequally harms students in areas of the curriculum devoted to critically analyzing forms of social inequality and violence. This fund is one part of our strategy of mutual aid. We estimate a $60,000 immediate need for the four FMST graduate students. FMST graduate students will manage these funds directly for the following needs: preventing deportation of international students through tuition payments; maintaining health insurance; supporting lost wages. In the event that we raise money beyond these initial needs, we will share these funds with other graduate students who have been fired.
