Calserve 2019 executive slate

When selecting our executive slate, our coalition centers the community members who have proven their commitment to the work. We consider candidates' experience in grassroots organizing, qualifications within the ASUC, intentionality in values, and potential to be the best advocates possible for our campus community. We understand the executive offices to be platforms that can uplift community needs, so we choose wisely. Our 2019 Executive Slate embodies the politics we strive to uphold and are proud to announce. Vote CalSERVE!



"The ASUC Presidency is bigger than any one person: it’s an opportunity to uplift communities in the margins, to prioritize voices that aren’t heard in governance or advocacy. The Office of the President holds unique potential to unite the student body behind principles of progress, innovation, and growth— that potential cannot be reached without tremendous courage and a willingness to communicate with the student body. For too long, the Office of the President has been dedicated to upholding the institutional status quo, but, in order to truly strengthen the ASUC and this campus, we need a President who is willing to champion courageous policies and positions that will re-establish Berkeley as the gold standard for on-campus advocacy.”

executive vice president


"The Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is recognized as one of the largest student-run organizations in the nation. The salience of the ASUC is marred by stains of partisanship much to the dismay of many in the student body. The ASUC serves approximately 40, 000 students annually with ever-changing leadership that has made maintaining a strong infrastructure challenging in spite of the fact the ASUC has seemingly functioned well as a political machine for students who have political aspirations. But, it has not served as a good advocate for the collective student body, in general. The ASUC has failed to function as a cohesive organization which has resulted in many students feeling disenfranchised by the very institution that was established to aid them in navigating the bureaucracy of the University of California’s systems. When you ask most students --outside of those already affiliated with the ASUC-- about its mission and you are sure to be met with blank stares.

Therefore, my mission as the EVP will be to create a better experience for students on campus and in the community by supporting student services, organizations, and their rights. In recent years, some in the ASUC has lost sight of the mission but if elected, I promise to make supporting student needs, organizations and student rights the chief aim of the ASUC.”

external affairs vice president


"The External Affairs Vice President represents the ASUC on issues external to the campus and the association- working with Berkeley city government, lobbying state officials, and sitting on the University of California Students Association board of Directors. In addition, the external affairs vice president supervises the appointment or nomination of students to positions within the lobbies and on U.C. system-wide committees, serves as the ASUC representative to the association of U.C. campuses.

ACADEMIC AFFAIRS vice president


"The Academic Affairs Vice President of the ASUC ensures student wellness and student success on our campus and serves as the liaison to the Academic Senate, a bureaucratic and out-of-touch entity responsible for all academic policy and practices. In order to make the Academic Senate work for students, the AAVP must utilize every second at every seat at every table in the Academic Senate, push for comprehensive and transformative academic policy to promote an equitable experience for all students, and demand that students be chosen over pride, profit, and reputation.”


Hey y’all! My name is Theodora “Teddy” Lake, I use she/her pronouns, and I’m a third-year student studying political science. Outside of the classroom, I serve as an ASUC Senator,* as well as the Chair* of the University and External Affairs Committee. My work as an ASUC Senator,* centers on academically, socially, emotionally, and artistically empowering the campus community, with a specific emphasis on the queer/trans community, as I am the community’s only endorsed ASUC Senator*.

Through all of my many projects, resolutions, and programs, I’ve developed a deep understanding of the ASUC, which has allowed me to identify its often-overwhelming flaws. Additionally, I’ve learned how to communicate directly with students to convey their positions in my advocacy and make them feel connected to and invested in student governance.

I’m running for ASUC President,* because I’m not done fighting for the best that Berkeley can be— and that work cannot be accomplished alone. As President*, I will continue to use my platform and privilege to center others over myself, while also challenging this University to become a better version of itself. My platforms are informed by three questions I ask myself every day.

How can we make the ASUC into an institution that works for everyone?

How can we energize the campus behind a shared sense of community?

What does it mean to truly be the #1 public University?

To reform the ASUC, I plan to take up a series of initiatives that will, ultimately, increase the ASUC’s transparency to the campus community, broaden accessibility to the ASUC for all students (especially those historically excluded from the institution), and reimagine the ASUC’s potential to positively impact student life and beyond. With respect to campus climate, I will use the Presidency to develop impactful programming that connects the campus community and intentionally uplifts diverse narratives, amplify student priorities through strategic advocacy, and hold the University accountable for its promises to center those in the margins. Finally, I plan to push Berkeley to care more deeply for its students, by streamlining access to basic needs for food insecure and unhoused students, implementing alternative safety tactics to reduce militarized police presence, and establish an all-encompassing understanding of wellness on campus.

I’m ready. Are you?

If only one thing about the ASUC is clear to students on campus, it’s that the Association is ineffective, out-of-touch, and inaccessible. As ASUC President,* Teddy will transform the ASUC into an institution that works for everyone, specifically by addressing matters pertaining to its transparency, accessibility, and impact. Firstly, Teddy will implement measures to increase the ASUC’s transparency to the campus community, so that the population is able to better hold the ASUC accountable. Teddy will, secondly, create reforms to broaden accessibility to the ASUC for all students, especially those historically excluded from the institution. Finally, Teddy will work with leaders and campus stakeholders to reimagine the ASUC’s potential to positively impact student life and beyond.


With the tense sociopolitical climate looming overhead, UC Berkeley’s campus climate has become deeply unhealthy. AS ASUC President,* Teddy will energize the campus behind a shared sense of community, specifically through programming, advocacy, and holding the University accountable for its target 2020 goals. Firstly, Teddy will use the Office of the President to develop impactful programming that connects the campus community and intentionally uplifts diverse narratives. Teddy will, also, keep constant channels of communication open for the student body, so that her advocacy priorities as President* remain in harmony with the most pressing needs on campus. Finally, Teddy will ensure UC Berkeley is ready to enter 2020, by holding the University accountable for its years-old promises to center those in the margins.


Despite being heralded as the “#1 Public University” in America, UC Berkeley consistently fails its most vulnerable students. As ASUC President,* Teddy will challenge administrators, faculty, and students to think more critically about what it truly means to be the “#1 Public University,” particularly with respect to basic needs, safety, and wellness on campus. Firstly, Teddy will develop infrastructure to streamline access to basic needs for food insecure and unhoused students, while also giving consideration to UC Berkeley’s food insecure and unhoused neighbors. Teddy will, also, work to implement alternative safety tactics to reduce militarized police presence on campus, which will ultimately make Berkeley safer for students more likely to suffer police violence. Lastly, Teddy will work with relevant campus entities to combat the culture of self-sacrificing and establish an all-encompassing understanding of wellness on campus.

Teddy’s Platforms Explained


How can we make the ASUC into an institution that works for everyone?

I. Increase Transparency

a. Institutionalize a Spring ASUC Town Hall, at which the President delivers a “State of the Association” address that sparks collective reflection, allows for community feedback, and inspires officials within the Association to chart a course forward.

b. Create accessible, public video coverage of ASUC business, by partnering with CalTV to implement a weekly recap program for all Senate meetings.

c. Re-envision the purpose of regular official reports, by expanding the forms they may take, the process to submit them, and the criteria they’re evaluated on.

II. Broaden Accessibility

a. Empower future leaders by establishing bi-annual leadership development trainings through the LEAD Center that teach uplifting leadership practices to inexperienced and underrepresented students interested in on-campus advocacy.

b. Collaborate with the Chief Legal Officer and the ASUC Alumni Association to explore alternative forms of compensation that respect the labor of ASUC officials, while also prioritizing the financial needs of the organizations that rely on our funds.

c. Decentralize ASUC leadership opportunities and combat the insulation of authority, by creating strict dissemination protocols that ensure the equitable, intentional publication of openings for newcomers to serve on commissions, committees, boards, et cetera.

III. Reimagine Impact

a. Establish an “ASUC x Community Summit,” where community members and leaders are empowered to express the fullest extent of their concerns to elected officials.

b. Ignite a culture of service through collaboration with the Public Service Center to institutionalize regular ASUC Service Days that inspire affiliates to invest in the world beyond the campus and the institution.

c. Unite the ASUC behind shared purpose and values, by creating a more thorough understanding of and investment in the Advocacy Agenda.



How can we energize the campus behind a shared sense of community?

I. Develop Programming

a. Leverage University relationships to more regularly bring informative, inspirational, and diverse speakers to Berkeley for on-campus engagements that are of little or no cost to students.

b. Demystify and revitalize CalLink as a hub for Registered Student Organizations to improve partnerships, increase event visibility, and encourage resource sharing.

c. Return the power of programming to the Office of the President, by maintaining a regular, multi-faceted presence on Sproul that allows students to feel meaningfully connected to ASUC leadership.

II. Amplify Advocacy

a. Establish an “RRC Task Force” within the Office of the President to uplift existing efforts to recruit and retain underrepresented students, without co-opting work.

b. Amplify student voices, by crafting a Student Stakeholder Policy that requires executives to bring at least one non-ASUC affiliated student to administrative meetings on a regular basis.

c. Institutionalize the “OP Priorities Survey” to allow students to anonymously and regularly submit critical advocacy issues for consideration.

III. Center Those in the Margins

a. Foster gender equity and queer/trans inclusivity on campus, through supporting: the inclusion of pronouns on Cal1Cards and CalCentral, the expansion of gender neutral bathroom accessibility, and the integration of more robust reproductive services at the TANG Center, including subsidized Plan B and medicated abortion services.

b. Hold administrators accountable for the impending “2020 Outcomes” listed in the 2009 Strategic Plan for Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity with emphasis on the University’s goals to diversify campus faculty and eliminate recruitment and retention disparities. This includes holding the University accountable to their commitment to the HSI initiative.

c. Establish a “Disabled Students’ Commission” within the ASUC to allow for identifying students to control the narrative surrounding disability, while using ASUC resources to expand DSP advocacy on campus.



What does it mean to truly be the #1 public university?

I. Basic Needs Accessibility

a. Expand efforts to redistribute excess food, by developing a seamless pipeline that carries food from RSO events, CalGreek houses, Co-Ops, and CalDining facilities to the Food Pantry and unhoused folks in the area.

b. Advocate alongside the Student Advocate’s Office for University properties and CalGreek homes to remain open over academic breaks and support efforts to provide temporarily unhoused students with a guaranteed alternative.

c. Work with the University to guarantee the implementation of the Master Housing Plan and to ensure development happens without consequently gentrifying the city or surrounding areas.

II. Inclusive Safety Tactics

a. Expand the Community Service Officer/BearWalk program, in an effort to keep Cal safe without increasing the presence of militarized police officers on campus.

b. Establish a “Student Safety Survey” that allows for students to report non-emergent safety concerns to a non-police authority, who may then be able to take corrective action or advise on next steps.

c. Work with PATH to Care to expand their capacity to offer non-confidential services (i.e. drop-in office hours) and hold the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination accountable for its failure to offer consistently equitable, expedient services to students in need.

III. All-Encompassing Wellness

a. Advocate to establish a voluntary mental health screening provided to incoming-students, who’ve submitted their Statement of Intent to Register.

b. Develop meaningful programs for students suffering from substance abuse, while also educating the campus about the signs of an addiction through partnership with SoBears.

c. Develop a partnership with the Ann Chandler Public Health Center to ensure students without SHIP or the financial capacity to pay a fee receive necessary services, such as vaccinations.

maureen for executive vice president

Maureen is passionate about equality and inclusion which is shown in both her professional experience and work as an activist. Maureen currently serves as an ASUC Commission Chair overseeing UCPD and was the Director of Police Reform in the ASUC Office of Senator Amir Wright.

MAUREEN’s Platforms Explained

Strategic Alliances:

  • Serve as an expert in business development and property management to ensure that space allocation in Lower Sproul Plaza and the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union basement provides all student organizations timely and equitable resources in accordance with the ASUC’s mission.

  • Serve as a skilled negotiator and mediator between the Senate, Executive Leadership, Commissions, and RSOs with the ASUC’s mission at the core of each interaction.

  • Improve the campus culture by making the ASUC salient to students again; including making it more visible and accessible -- starting by publicizing accomplishments on the ASUC Student Union’s digital signage.

  • Collaborate with the Basic Needs Center to ensure Basic Needs can be central in all ASUC efforts and its sponsored organizations. This includes increasing advocacy within administrative fee allocation and grants committees.


Streamline Business Practices and Protocols

  • Partner with the Senate, Commissions, and other ASUC affiliate organization to streamline practices and protocols. Access to the ASUC should not be cumbersome -- this includes attending weekly Senate meetings.

  • Partner with RSOs to ensure they have adequate access to resources — a goal I hope to achieve through maximizing the amount of available space on campus by identifying underutilized locations alongside the Office of Academic and Space Planning. I also hope to work alongside the Student Union’s board to continue expanding space available in both.

  • Partner with the Student Union Board of Directors to ensure ethical investment in small business and ensure priority space for organizations that serve marginalized students. The Student Union should be an inclusive place for every student.


Strengthen Community Engagement

  • I will work to ensure that all students have a say in the organization and governance of UC Berkeley by keeping processes practical and achievable by no longer relying on Senate for dialogue with administrators. Instead, I will host monthly town halls and meetings for student identity groups and other organizations to talk with the campus’ Chancellor and her cabinet.

  • I will collaborate with the Office of Accountability in the ASUC to ensure that there is a succession plan in place to transfer institutional knowledge when cabinet terms end so that students are not harmed by ASUC transitions.

  • I will collaborate with the Vice Chancellor of Admissions and other stakeholders to ensure that diversity and inclusion are considered in the admissions process; and that the University increases recruitment and retention efforts for students of color.

  • I will collaborate with bridges and the Vice Chancellor of Admissions to ensure that the University hires faculty that represents the diversity of the student population.

varsha FOR

external affairs vice president

Hi there! My name is Varsha and I am a third year majoring in Political Science. I am currently the State Affairs director for the External Affairs Vice President Office, and now I am running to become your EAVP. As an activist, organizer, lobbyist, and advocate -- I’ve organized the protest that ousted former Regent Norman Pattiz*, helped stop a tuition hike on in-state students, and won hundreds of millions of dollars in additional funding from the state Capitol — leading to the first tuition decrease in two decades. I went on to manage Rigel Robinson’s successful campaign for City Council, and briefly worked as a legislative assistant in City Hall. I want to put my years of experience in politics, policy, and student advocacy to work as your next External Affairs Vice President. I will fight to make the University of California system more affordable, accessible, and equitable; work to strengthen relationships between the students, the community, and the city; advocate for the construction of more affordable housing; organize alongside and empower marginalized communities; and engage students with the 2020 census and midterm elections.

Varsha’s Platforms Explained


  • Fighting for #FundtheUC

    • The University of California system was supposed to be accessible and affordable to ordinary California families — but thanks to decades of state disinvestment, it’s getting harder and harder for students to get accepted to a UC, enroll in the classes they need to graduate, and access critical services like academic advising and mental health counseling.

      Varsha will fight for #FundtheUC by pressuring the Governor and state Legislature to reinvest in the University of California — in classes and student services — in their state budget. She will also pressure the state to place a general obligation bond on the 2020 ballot so that the UC has the resources it needs to renovate and expand its infrastructure for its growing student population.

      To do this, Varsha will organize students to attend budget hearings, phone-bank legislative offices, and lobby elected officials and their staff. She will also leverage her relationships with student leaders across the UC system, as well as administrators, to build a unified coalition and show the Governor and Legislature that they can no longer put UC students at the bottom of their priority lists.

  • Securing our basic needs

    • California’s skyrocketing cost of living in California is leaving students behind. Far too many UC students are food insecure, housing insecure, and/or homeless. While existing financial aid covers the cost of tuition and fees for most low-income students, UC students are far less likely to see their non-tuition costs covered — including housing, food, transportation, and textbooks.

      Varsha will work toward securing our basic needs by working with student leaders, administrators, the Governor, and the Legislature to reform and expand Cal Grant to better cover the total cost of attendance — not just tuition and fees. She’ll also demand that UC Berkeley, the UC system, and the state invest in basic needs resources and emergency loans.

      On the federal level, Varsha will mobilize students to support expanding the Pell Grant, which has fallen for inflation over the past few decades. In addition, she will vigorously oppose any cuts to the Supplemental Nutritional Aid Program (SNAP), which provides critical assistance to students across the state.

  • Strengthening Title IX

    • TW: sexual harassment, sexual violence

      Thanks to the dedication of student organizers, we have made significant progress on combating sexual harassment and sexual violence on our campuses. But we have a long way to go. Last year, the California State Auditor found that UC’s Title IX process is not in compliance with federal guidelines — and, making matters worse, the Trump Administration is attacking those federal guidelines as we speak.

      Varsha will work with fellow students, UC administrators, the Board of Regents, and the Title IX student advisory board to strengthen the Title IX process on our campuses — and she will not hesitate to hold the UC accountable when it puts perpetrators before survivors.

      Varsha will also mobilize students to continue to push back against attempts to roll back Title IX guidelines in Washington, D.C., and pressure the state to incorporate Title IX guidelines into state law.Strengthening Title IX



  • Bringing town and gown together

    • Berkeley can feel deeply divided between the students and the surrounding community. In addition, students — who are a third of the city’s population — are still disproportionately underrepresented on City Council, on the Rent Stabilization Board, and on city commissions.

      Varsha will leverage her relationships with City Hall to bring town and gown together. She will work with the Mayor, Councilmember Rigel Robinson, and the rest of the City Council to engage students in city politics, identify and collaborate on joint policy priorities, and ensure that students are properly represented in the share of commission appointments.

      Varsha also recognizes that students and community members — such as low-income homeowners and long-term tenants — have similar needs and concerns before city government. In addition to working with City Hall, Varsha is committed to strengthening relationships with community partners to ensure that student advocacy on city priorities does not come at the expense of other vital community members.

  • Building more, affordable housing

    • California is facing a housing crisis, and the Bay Area is the epicenter of it. When it comes to housing, students are paying more and more and getting less and less. The housing crisis forces far too many students to commute to campus, and leaves many of them without secure housing.

      Varsha will pressure university administrators, the city, and the state to build more, affordable housing. She will hold the Chancellor accountable to her housing goals, and pressure the university to minimize its reliance on public-private partnerships. In addition, she will pressure the City to upzone the campus footprint area, and support efforts by state officials to pressure localities to build more housing.

      But Varsha also recognizes that we simply cannot build our way out of the housing crisis. In City Hall, she will push for community benefit agreements and anti-gentrification protections for new developments, and in Sacramento, she will advocate for rent control reform and additional tenant protections.

  • Organizing with communities

    • The Associated Students of the University of California serves a vital role in the student community, but far too often, it becomes an echo chamber for the most privileged students.

      Varsha will use her office, platform, and resources to organize with communities. She will work to engage various student communities on campus — including and especially underrepresented students, low-income students, and students of color — in the work of her office.

      To do this, Varsha will ensure that her office reflects the diversity of California students. She’ll be accessible to students who want to meet with her, and keep her work transparent so that communities can hold her accountable.



  • Championing progressive values

    • For decades, Berkeley students have been the moral compass of the national conversation. Especially in 2019, as the federal administration attacks progressive values on a day to day basis, it is vital that our actions and our advocacy epitomize progressive values — and not just when it comes to college students.

      On the local level, Varsha will push city officials to back up their rhetoric with action, from unwinding residential segregation to ending contracts with corporations that aid and abet Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. On the state level, she will mobilize students behind private prison abolition, police oversight and accountability, access to reproductive care, and environmental justice. On the federal level, she will ensure that Berkeley students play a loud and prominent role in opposing the reprehensible policies of this federal administration. Varsha will also explore ways to support progressive policies on the international level.

      In line with her pledge to organize with communities, Varsha will solicit feedback from communities regarding what additional progressive priorities her office should mobilize around, and be sure to involve and engage communities when an issue pertaining to them is being discussed.

  • Making our voices heard (election 2020)

    • Elected officials won’t serve students unless students play a role in electing them. Next year, the California presidential primary will be held early, on March 3 — giving Berkeley students a uniquely powerful position in selecting our presidential nominees.

      Varsha will take advantage of the earlier primary by improving and expanding upon last year’s Vote Coalition efforts to make our voices heard. This includes working alongside registered student organization non-profits on both voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts, as well as thinking creatively about outreach strategies that get all eligible students motivated about voting.

      Varsha will also pressure the university and the county to make voting accessible for students. She’ll demand that the university make election day an academic and administrative holiday and honor its Memorandum of Understanding with the California Secretary of State by incorporating automatic voter registration into CalCentral. She’ll also ensure that Alameda County sets up a polling place in MLK, Jr. Student Union so that it’s as easy as possible for all eligible students to vote on Election Day.

  • Making sure we count (census 2020)

    • The 2020 census determines the political representation of the Berkeley community — and, unsurprisingly, students are systematically undercounted. Census officials lack the know-how to tap into student networks, leaving students with even less weight in the halls of power.

      Varsha will expand Vote Coalition’s staff to task it with making sure we count. Using similar voter registration, get-out-the-vote, and creative outreach strategies, Varsha’s office will ensure that students are aware of the census, and are provided with the resources they need to submit their census information ahead of schedule.

      Varsha will also partner with university administrators, city officials, and county officials to coordinate census outreach efforts, and push back against federal attempts to add a citizenship-related question and exclude sexual orientation/gender identity questions on the census.

regan for Academic affairs vice president

Hello, hello, hello! My name is Regan Putnam (they/them/theirs) I am currently the External Director of the Queer Alliance Resource Center*, Co-chair for the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on LGBTQIA+ Communities*, and the Student Liaison for the Division of Student Affairs*. Through these roles, I have learned how to effectively fund major programs through both philanthropic and institutional channels, how to engage and advise faculty and staff on classroom climate, and how to enact meaningful change for our students.

My work is rooted in the power of community. As students, we must effectively use our collective voice and bodies to enact meaningful change on this campus. As your next Academic Affairs Vice President, I intend to continue my focus on community organizing, using the office as a means of collaboration and uplifting community work. As your next Academic Affairs Vice President, I will fight to make Berkeley the best Berkeley can be.

As your next Academic Affairs Vice President, I will focus on three core initiatives. First, we will create a UC Berkeley that is accessible for all by increasing resource accessibility, visibility, and quantity. Second, we will alter the Academic Affairs Vice President’s approach diversity in practice, fighting for inclusive academic policies, student representation, and equity of experience. Finally, we will establish wellness that works, combating toxic campus climate and ensuring that all students have adequate healthcare, particularly for sexual health, sexual violence, mental health, and disability related needs.

Our University must ensure our programs and resources are accessible to all students. As AAVP, Regan will ease financial insecurity by establishing an outreach program financial aid documentation and expanding the AAVP’s Grants and Scholarships Program through high-yield sources of funding. Additionally, Regan will look to close the research gap, lowing inequities in research opportunities. Finally, Regan, as AAVP, will build bridges to resources. They will do this by increasing resource accessibility and visibility, expanding the AAVP’s direct resources through the establishment of an ASUC Alumni Network, and advocating for University investment in programs essential to student well-being.


Our University must ensure our diversity practices are aligned with the needs of students. As AAVP, Regan will continue their work on promoting professor accountability, implementing inclusive classroom policies, and establishing a third mandatory question course ranking the class’s and professor’s equity and inclusion. Additionally, Regan will look to align the University’s diversity, housing, and basic needs initiatives with those of students and to increase student representation on University committees and other campus initiatives. Finally, Regan will look to better orient incoming Cal students by expanding theme programs and transition courses.


The University must take both a resource and climate-based approach in order to comprehensively address mental and physical wellness. In terms of a resource-based approach, Regan will demystify the process of finding long-term mental healthcare through establishment of a long-term care connector and eliminate accessibility gaps to the Disabled Students’ Program, including social stigma and faculty reluctance. Additionally, Regan will strengthen the campus response to sexual violence and sexual harassment (SVSH) in three core ways: prevention, support, and justice through transparency in the classroom and partnerships with Path to Care and other SVSH related resources. Finally, Regan will combat toxic campus climate that prevents access to mental and physical health-care, harms student well-being, and promotes toxicity to ensure long-term solutions for student wellness on campus.

calserve 2018 senatorial slate





Hey everyone! My name is is Emily Fregoso, I use she/they pronouns, and I am a second year student studying History and Global Poverty and Practice. I am from Los Angeles, California and have found myself fall more in love with the Bay everyday.

Interwoven within my platforms are the passions and strengths I have developed over my life as a result of my own personal experiences and what I know of the experiences of my fellow community members. I have seen and experienced how hard it is for womxn, LGBTQ+ folk, communities of color, and survivors to receive the necessary support while attending UC Berkeley. Berkeley academics are already so rigorous, let alone when coupled with challenges that un-proportionally affect marginalized communities. It is imperative that those in leadership positions actively make strides to reallocate funds and resources to those that need them most. If given the opportunity to serve as your next ASUC Senator, I would want to actively work with the community to ensure that their needs for the most marginalized are taken care of and served first.


Harassment and Violence Elimination and Survivor Support

  • Sexual violence and harassment are prominent issues impacting UC Berkeley, that disproportionately burden systematically marginalized communities. Historically underrepresented communities face disparate access to university resources. I envision the elimination of sexual violence and harassment on our campus through the implementation of networks that facilitate student access to resources already provided by the university. In a collaboration with the Path to Care team, I will use my office to create culturally sensitive healing spaces for survivors. Acknowledging that everyone’s healing journey is unique, my office will serve students in varied capacities including community events, educational workshops, and healing circles. Our office will center the voices of womxn, femmes, LGBTQ+, and students of color, in an attempt to shed light on the specific marginalizations they face. My office is also work to increase student engagement through strategic social media outreach and marketing that will amplify our [ ] to communities reluctant to seek our services. I am specifically interested in serving the Latinx community, where I have found a community space in my leadership positions in TRENZA and in the ASUC Office of the Latinx endorsed Senator Idalys Perez. As I have previously led in TRENZA alongside Hermanas Unidas through Path to Care, we have worked to create community guidelines and protocols in regards to sexual violence, healing, and survivor support. The work we have started in Latinx community highlights the potential for collaboration across the campus community.

Expansion of Equitable Healthcare Services

  • Sexual and mental health is an extremely significant aspect of one’s overall health. It is imperative that students of all identities are provided with opportunities to be educated on several aspects of sexual healthcare. I would want to collaborate with organizations like Sexual Health Education Program, Planned Parenthood, and the Berkeley Free Clinic, to create outreach events for various communities on campus who need the most support around this, such as LGBTQ+ folks of color and student sex workers. Another aspect of student healthcare that I find extremely significant is menstrual health. I would plan on working with and uplifting the work of student organizations, such as Ladies for Change and the [Students for the Institutionalization of Menstrual Products] SURJ??? that focus on menstrual hygiene and equity. I would want to collaborate with these students to also work on policy with the administration to establish the distribution of free menstrual health products and menstrual equity at UC Berkeley. Wellness machines, like the one recently set up at the RSF should be available at other locations on campus where they are accessible to the general public, and other off-campus UC Berkeley locations, such as dorms, apartments, etc. From my own personal experiences, from the experiences my friends have had, and from general knowledge on how the institution affects marginalized folks, I understand that seeking help with mental health especially after experiencing a traumatic event is extremely challenging. What creates additional barriers and discomfort is finding a source of help that one feels comfortable with sharing their life with and one they can relate to. During my term, if elected, I would also plan to apply to the wellness grants offered to create another Social Services counselor position that identifies as a queer/trans person of color to serve LGBTQ+ community members of color at UC Berkeley.

Champion Retention of Students of Color on Campus: Retention Resources for the Latinx Community

  • Although the announcement of UC Berkeley taking initiatives to become a Hispanic Serving Institution is overall a positive one, it is important to ensure that this is more than simply a recruiting tactic without tangibly supporting the students it enrolls. I would want to collaborate with the Latinx community to create avenues for us to actively communicate with and hold the administration accountable in supporting the Latinx community in its entirety. The Latinx community possesses individuals with intersecting identities, such as Afro-Latinx folk and queer/trans Latinx, and thus have unique needs and challenges. The Latinx narrative is also historically Mexican-centric and it is also important that various narratives and perspectives regarding Latinx community retention. I would want to stay in connection with the administration while they are working on the HSI initiative and ensure that the community’s wants and needs are put on the agenda. On a community-scale, I would want to collaborate with both the Black Community and Queer/Trans community to host community education events that work to dismantle the Anti-blackness, homophobia, and sexism within the community. I also want to assist with the empowerment of the existing Latinx organizations and hostly fundraisers every other month to give back to the community members as needed as well as host community meetings every month in order to continuously receive feedback, critiques, and input from the community to ensure that I am doing the best I can to serve their needs.

✿ ✿ ✿


Colleges of Chemistry and Engineering

  • Grading Policy Transparency

    • The Colleges of Chemistry and Engineering are notorious for putting out classes and majors with the lowest average grades. The grading in these classes can often feel like a mystery. I will work with administration in CoC and CoE to require that professors and GSIs publish data on exactly how the class was curved and how each section was evaluated against the mean. I will work to open regrade requests for every tests, especially end of semester finals.

  • Fair Unit Accreditation

    • Classes such as CBE 40 and the CHEM 120 series are extremely time demanding but are offered for 2 or 3 units. This devalues the work that students put in and disincentives working hard when one is not properly compensated for their work. I plan to work with the Department of Chemistry to ensure that students’ hard work is respected and rewarded fairly. I will revisit the recommended schedule plan for all majors within the CoC and rearrange suggested classes so class units do not have to be deflated to sum in at the 21 unit cap.

  • Reserved Seats in Necessary Courses

    • Many majors in CoE/CoC require completion of L&S courses, but those courses’ reserved seatings do not reflect this, while they have reserved seats for undeclared L&S. This leaves CoE/CoC students at a disadvantage and a stressful position for completing required courses on time. I will enlist the help of CoE/CoC administration to start a conversation with scheduling admin in L&S to make space for students from different colleges in reserved seating during enrollment.

Student Involvement in Sustainability on Campus

Our Campaign aims to foster a culture of DIRECTLY including students in sustainability projects on campus.

  • Sustainable Projects Competition

    • Many RSO’s are working independently on environmental causes, while University policy moves along without consideration for their ideas.

    • I plan on introducing a pilot interdisciplinary, campus-wide, and year long competition to dream up, design, test, and market a project to bring our campus closer to being truly sustainable. As ASUC Senator, I will work with UCB administration to approve scale-up plans to actually implement the project winner design on campus.

  • Green Campus

    • The City of Berkeley is currently phasing out natural gas heating for heat pumps. Because the City does not have jurisdiction over campus, this is up to us. We should push the university to opt in for East Bay Community Energy “Renewable 100” energy plan, one that is 100% renewable and carbon neutral. Additionally, we must take a stance against fossil fuel industries by divesting and finding alternatives to their monetary contributions to our university. Environmentalism is for everyone and MUST BE MADE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL STUDENTS.

    • I have the necessary connections to work with the City of Berkeley to learn more about what the city is doing and how we can progress as a campus as well. I plan to push the administration to adopt the “Renewable 100” energy plan.

    • I will look into the logistics of installation of solar panels and urban gardens on campus buildings, especially MLK and Eshleman, then start action to install them on campus.

    • I will explore establishing a 1 unit P/NP field course for student-led campus clean up.

    • I will push for an environmental training to be presented to new students during GBO.


Expanding and Destigmatizing Mental Health

Counseling Outreach and Multicultural Support

  • Managing independence, advanced curricula, and personal growth is emotionally draining and demanding. The stress of all these can build up and seeking help in counseling is not an obvious option for many students, especially those from communities where mental health is not easily openly discussed. As an institution, it is our RESPONSIBILITY to ensure that any student from any background, creed, and culture is fully supported. I will advocate for the University hiring more multicultural, cross-faith, and LGBTQIA+ counselors so that conversations are rooted in true understanding.

Expansion of Services and Spaces

  • I will work to open up Tang Satellites on Northside to facilitate counseling for STEM students who frequent that area. I will urge the university to invest in counselors so that students are getting care when they need it, without ridiculous wait times in dire situations.


Since 2016, I have been advocating in the state of Washington for educational reform targeted at less penalty and more support for homeless, truant, and at-risk students from K-12 in the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. I have promoted legislation to mandate sexual education and integrate content on human trafficking and sexual violence into the middle and high school curriculum as an intern in the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. In 2017, I submitted a state senate bill drafted with WA senator Mike Padden on integrating human trafficking education in public schools, which had cross-aisle sponsors.

Since the first semester of my freshman year, I have been part of the ongoing sustainability goals of the Biofuels Technology Club (BTC). The work we do in BTC has actually inspired my Sustainable Projects Competition. Pretty much, BTC takes waste cooking oil from Cal Dining, helping them reduce their waste removal costs. A team of students then gets hands-on experience synthesizing biodiesel from this waste cooking oil. A scale up team can then mass produce this biodiesel, which we then sell back to Cal vehicles that run on biodiesel. This process not only engages students in real-world experiences, but also completes a net-zero carbon cycle within our community.

This year, I joined Our Monologues, the largest production put on by UC Berkeley students to platform the voices of femme, nonbinary, and students of color and their relationships to gender, race, sexuality, and other intersections of their identity. Our mission is to end gender-based violence and promote gender equity on our campus and in the world. Not only is our production vital for our campus culture, the proceeds of our show will directly benefit the Transgender Law Center, Bay Area Women Against Rape, the Homeless Prenatal Program, and Cal’s Black Student Union.

I am a panelist for MENA-RRC’s Gender and Sexuality board, which hosts events such as “the Sex Talk We Never Had”, and discussions about coming out in MENA families.

 nicole FOR SENATE

Hi, my name is Nicole Anyanwu! I am currently second-year pre-med from Dallas, Texapursuing Public Health with a BioE minor here at the University of California-Berkeley. Health is extremely important to me and is often taken for granted on this campus, and that shouldn’t be the case, and in response to that, I am running for the health of our students.

I aim to address varying campus issues through the lens of health- with a focus on fostering inclusivity, accessibility, and retention in pre-medical programs and organizations on campus, providing all survivors on campus with timely and adequate care, in addition to further resources and support, and improving the campus’ overall physical and mental health, by expanding food security programs, addressing issues with accessibility to Tang along academic stress & anxiety, promoting physical wellness, and making sure that students are properly accommodated and sustained here on this campus.

I would like to opportunity to turn the narratives of students, in addition to that of my own, into experiential knowledge that can be paired with both organizational and institutional knowledge. 

I have served as External Community Outreach Director for the AAVP Office of Melany Amarikwa*, was appointed to serve American Cultures Academic Committee as an ASUC/Student Body Representative*, and was a founding member of the AAVP’s Inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Department*. I have worked tirelessly to provide resources and student programming on campus, have been proactive in volunteering and organizing campus wellness campaigns and programs, and have forged relations with top professionals, companies, and non-profits in the Bay Area in efforts to close the student opportunities and support gap.

I am running with CalSERVE due to its track record with diversity and inclusion, and its unapologetic nature in its concerns about the campus climate, the environment, affordability, basic needs, student voices, and activism both in and out of the classroom. Join me and together we can #BuildAHealthierBerkeley 


Pre-Health Community Resources & Support

  • Creating a Pre-Health Hub on Campus

    • Meeting with campus administrators and pre-health organization leaders to emphasize the need for and to develop the creation of pre-med collaboration space/study hub on campus to encourage cooperation amongst all campus pre-meds, allowing for a space for pre-meds to meet on campus and to attain support and resources.

  • Uplifting Minority Groups in Health

    • Building location partnerships and ASUC Funding to provide Additional Monetary Support for the Minorities In Health Conference, Highlighting to Campus Administration the Imparity in Increased Funding & Support for Pre-Health/Pre-Research Related Programs and Organizations for Minority Students, & Working With University Colleges, Campus Leaders, and Administration To Discuss Ways to Increase Minority Representation and Retention in Pre-Health Related Academic Programs, Research, & Pre-Health Council

  • Establishing a Pre-Health Opportunities Bank

    • Creating an extensive and digitized opportunity bank full of 1000+ already collected research opportunities, scholarships, internships, post-bac programs, and programming for all pre-health students, especially those traditionally underrepresented and/or non-traditional.

  • Improving Resources & Support for “Non-Traditional” Pre-Health Pathways, Majors, & Students

    • Expanding Pre-Health Peer Advising to be more diversified and to include a variety of majors outside of the traditional MCB/IB Scope. Utilizing Institutional Equity Organizations to provide more support for those pursuing Post-Baccalaureate Programs, Taking Gap Years, or working towards Grad School/Joint Medical Programs. Lastly, partnering with UCSF & Pre-Med Advising to create workshops for Applying To & Financing Medical School/Grad School for First Generation, Low-Income, Non-Traditional, and/or Minorities in Health.

Sexual Violence/Harassment & Intimate Partner Violence/Abuse

Increasing Comprehensive SVSH Training/Programming

  • More Enhanced & Thorough Situational Training

    • We have seen increased instance of sexual assault taking place in registered student organizations (RSOs) and on-campus living, in addition to instances in the Greek Community, and in efforts to better equip groups and leaderships for such instances, I would like to partner with Path to Care to push for more effective programing and training for campus RSOs, for RAs, Health Workers (HWPs), and during the Golden Bear Orientation.

  • Addressing Environment, MisInformation, and Campus Mentality

    • We want to support survivors no matter when and where their experiences took place, in addition to uplifting and supporting male, POC, and trans survivors as well. I want to fund and partner with Path to Care to utilize the My Voice Survey and survivor experiences to launch a social media campaign for the promotion of the center and its resources and to open the campus up to a larger conversation on consent.

    Strengthen SVSH Resources, Partnerships, & Programming

    • Addressing Issues with OPHD Process

      • Push for more transparency in the OPHD Process and promote the hiring of more diversified staff of CROs/Investigators for unbiased work on OPHD cases.

    • Streamlining of Tang Resources For Survivors

      • We need to support survivors- and the manner in which I aim do this is to continue work to expand the already existing survivor group at Tang, to support and aid in the final developments of the SVSH Healing Circle at Tang, to work to increase immediate survivor accessibility to counseling and external professionals via Tang, and promotion of free resources at Tang Center (ie. SHEP).

    • Normalizing Healthy Relationships & Mindfulness

      • Founding a “Real Talk” Program to have conversations amongst the larger Berkeley community about intimate partner violence and abuse, relation boundaries, toxic relationships, and mindfulness for self and others.

    • Leveraging Partnerships with Local Organizations

      • Formulating formal partnerships with local SVSH organizations such as Bay Area Women Against Rape (BAWAR), Alameda County Family Justice Center, and the Family Violence Law Center to provide pro-bono legal advising for OPHD cases, in addition free external confidential advocates and free mental health resources; in addition to partnerships with Equal Rights Advocates (ERA) who help connect survivor’s with legal help, lawyers, and counsel for pursuing Title IX related lawsuits.

Food Insecurity & Wellness

Combating Food Insecurity

  • EBT Credit Acceptable @ Cal Dining Locations*

    • Some students are on campus all day, and need accessibility with affordability in terms of accessing meals on campus. Sometimes students go the whole day without a meal, or skip meals due to the desire to save money or stay on campus, and that can be changed with Cal Dining locations* (Bear Market, GBC, & Cub Market) accepting EBT. The main caveat is that EBT cannot be used on hot foods, alcohol,cigarettes, pet food, paper products, medicine, or household supplies, but these locations do present pre-packaged foods and cold food which are eligible.The goal would be to institute a sticker labeling system system for EBT eligible foods to allow access and knowledge of eligibility without stigma.

  • Socioeconomic De-stigmatization of Food Security Resources

    • More CalFresh workshops for awareness for eligibility amongst middle-class & work-study eligible students (getting more eligible students signed up), in addition to lower-income students

    • Expansion of Food Pantry Resources

      • Using ASUC Grants, in addition to community and corporational partnerships, to build upon donations to allow for additional options and resources for food pantry and food security not only for those who are low-income & middle-class, but also those not traditionally eligible for CalFresh

        • Undocumented Students & International Students

    Promoting Physical & Mental Campus Wellness

    • Addressing Academic Stress/Anxiety & Campus-Wide Nutritional Health

      • Promote Cal Food For Thought’s Emotional & Food Literacy Courses to address academic anxiety/stress management & nutritional learning. Use platform to increase their visibility, linking these programs with Tang associated health campaigns, and increasing class times, funding, and programming via ASUC Grants.

    • Cal Rec Sports, Under Armour, & Cal Social Good Health Partnership  

      • Fitness and exercise have been proven to have a significant impact on one’s mental and physical health- and Cal Rec Sports & Under Armour’s Spring Into Fitness, Miles for Meals, and Cal/UA Giveback Challenges encourage and emphasize the need for students to be active, while also giving back to Basic Needs resources, such as Food Pantry. We want to utilize the platform of the ASUC to increase visibility for such programming along with the Cal Social Good, to strengthen ASUC involvement with such initiatives, to take advantage of the school’s partnership and sponsorship with Under Armour, and to ensure that an event and/or event(s) like these definitively become (an) annual occasion(s) to which students look forward to and are willing to participate in each spring.

    • Addressing Campus Mental Health

      • Advocating and having critical discussion with Tang to urge the onboarding of a greater amount of Tang counselors, especially those more diversified (racially/ethnically, socioeconomically, sexual-orientation, gender-identity wise, etc.)

      • Collaborating with administrators for drive for the extension of hours at Tang satellite locations across campus, in order to accommodate the needs for all students who wish to be seen in a timely manner

      • Working for the continued expansion the Tang Center’s Health Opportunity Fund (HOF), which can be utilized by the students who qualify to cover health-related costs.

    • Disabled Student’s Program

      • Pressuring administration and working to attain more funding for the Disabled Student’s Program (DSP) in order to better support student services, proctoring availability, and the streamlining of the DSP application process.

 omotara FOR SENATE

Hello pals! My name is Omotara Oloye and I'm a second-year studying Computer Science and Music from San Leandro, CA. I love performing and visual arts, films and filmmaking, and (global) politics and I’m passionate about service, teaching, and working with students.

Ever since I stepped on campus, I have been hyper aware of presence in my clubs, classes, and general settings. I understand how my many intersecting identities affect my experience here. By acclimating myself into the Black Community, the Engineering and Greater STEM community, and my favorite open gym volleyball folx, I have been able to keep my head afloat in this wide pond of an institution. But I know that this narrative isn’t the same for everyone. I have a drive to improve the lives of students and mitigate the feeling of loneliness. I want to improve the current programs and services for students who feel like they have also been left on the margins of this University. As a senator, I hope to focus on increasing academic opportunities for marginalized groups, securing spaces, strengthening professional development and alumni engagement services, and revitalizing and retaining the Black Community @ Cal. One may ask, why are you running for Senate?

I am running for Senate because I want to empower the communities that I am a part of and continue the work I already have started on campus. I am running for Senate because while I love this institution, I understand how the lives of students can be improved. I am running for Senate because I believe I can dutifully step up to the plate to advocate and be a voice for the people at this University. Join me so that we can progress to a better university and a better future! For more information, check out my platforms below!!

With warmth and passion,



Increase Academic Opportunities for Marginalized Groups

  • Reconstruct Hearst Field Annex to have more space for Black Students, Undocumented Students, QARC, Bridges, and the most vulnerable communities

Strengthen Professional Development and Alumni Engagement Services,

  • Create a speaker series where alumni in industry come back to speak on their experiences in their respective fields by working with the Cal Alumni Association.

  • Host a Diversity Career Fair in conjunction with the Career Center so that minority students are not intimidated by hour-long lines

  • Work with the Career Center to have POC, LGBTQIA+, DSP accommodating, first-generation, and low-income specific workshops on how to create cover letters, resume building, mock interview and grad application assistance, and guided mentorship into the workforce upon graduation

This is the word that defines those who support me, those who uplift me, those who empower me, and those who surround me. It has been our Latinx community that has given me a home here on this campus. It has been our Latinx community that brought me to Cal for the first time and instilled in me the idea that we deserve to be here. It has been our community that has given me a space to learn, a space to challenge myself, and a space to grow.

Being a Latinx Endorsed candidate* is not something that I take lightly because I understand the responsibility that I have to stand up for our community. This endorsement means that I hold the duty of advocating for our community when the ASUC, the administration, and this campus fail to acknowledge our presence. This endorsement pushes me to continue my work because I know that my service and my advocacy are larger than I am.

Having the support of our community reaffirms me that I need to step up and fight for us when our narratives are not being discussed. I know that I alone do not represent the intersectional identities that lie within our vastly diverse community, and I know that my narrative is not representative of the greater Latinx community, whether that be those who self-identify, those who do not self-identify, or those who consider themselves allies to our community. This however informs my work and pushes me to create changes that are inclusive and welcoming to all.

My presence in Raíces as a volunteer and an intern*, my presence in the SLC as a writing tutor*, my presence in the Alumni Scholars Board as the Retention and Outreach Chair*, and my presence as a student on this campus have served as experiences pushing me to do MORE.

As a Latinx Endorsed* #Candidato, I will continue showing up for our community, I will continue being loud if the situation requires me to do so, and I will continue uplifting us because this university is not doing enough and we need to support one another on this journey.

I would like to thank everyone in the community who voted and I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to our community. I am humbled by your endorsement and I am ready to represent, uplift, and empower our community.

I am Pedro Adrian De Anda Plascencia, Your Latinx Endorsed ASUC Senate Candidate*.

yesenia FOR SENATE

Hello y’all my name is Yesenia Solis I come from Avenal Ca. I am an undocumented student spring admit. I am second year Legal studies major with a minor in education. I came to the US when I was 6 and I remember that day very clearly. When I was twelve I realize that being an undocumented person in this nation was harder than I thought when I saw my uncle get deported. I hid my undocumented identity for a while until I was fed up of having to hide. I wasn't ashamed of who I was . I realize there was the need to have some representation in one why or other. Now I am at Uc Berkeley running to represent the Undocumented Student Community.

When I got into Berkeley I was so excited to finally be in my dream school as a spring admit and undocumented student. I thought coming here would give me a sense of happiness because I would’ve felt like home. However I was wrong. I dealt with depression my first semester I really felt like I had no one. My academics were not at there best and I really didn’t know why I felt like I was so alone in a big university as Berkeley. Then I realize that I didn’t felt welcome , I realize there wasn’t enough people who related to me. Yet I didn’t understand why I was dealing with this issue. I also recalled when there was rumors of ice being on campus and although I hold the privilege of DACA this was so scary for me. That’s when I realize that I couldn’t image how the other students who were in the same boat as me felt. Then as my next semester came I met more people who were undocumented and realize that this university really lacked some aspect to support us and unite us. Therefore one day I spoke about this to a great friend of mine (Teddy) and she explain to me how I can be a representation of change. So therefore not only I am here wanting to represent my undocumented community on campus by running for Asuc Senator but I also representing my mom, my dad and sister.

My objects are to help ensure that we unite as community and that we can improve the resources we have. My platforms consist of increasing resources for Undocu students, Collaborate with Undocumented Student Center, and create and Undocumented Alumni Network.

Increase Resources for Undocumented Students

Mental Health Resources

  • Most of us are low-income first-generation students who are doing this all on our own. Stress and anxiety are things we live with as undocumented students. We live in constant fear of one day getting deported. Even DACA students fear this because of the current political climate. We have to deal with signs on Sproul that say “Illegal Aliens”, and for me, it’s very triggering. It makes us feel as if we aren’t human. I get anxious and start to worry “will they know that I’m undocumented?” This can have severe consequences on our mental health. Undocumented students currently have one mental health counselor, but I would like to work on creating an undocumented student support group, directed by one of the undocu mental health counselors. Talking with each other about our experiences and our traumas can help us heal, and for those that aren’t comfortable being in a one-on-one setting with a counselor, this can be their way of seeking help. I would also like to hold photo campaigns and events celebrating the strength and resiliency of undocumented folks as a way to proactively address mental health. For this I will work closely with student organizations and the undocumented student program to promote and establish this ideas.

  • Financial Aid Resources

    • Increasing financial aid resources for the undocumented student population is essential for us to thrive in the university. Not having money to pay for tuition or food distracts us from performing well academically. I hope to expand the RISE scholarship and make it more flexible for students. I want to more students to benefit from this scholarship. To do this, I hope to work with the call center to obtain funding from alumni for this scholarship and others. I also plan on applying for grants from the AAVP office and CACSSF to obtain funding for scholarships.

  • Academic Resources

    • The Undocumented Student Program provides academic counseling for undocumented students, but in my experience, the counseling isn’t enough. Many of us learned English as our second language. Many of us work jobs on top of our coursework and extracurriculars to pay our rent and groceries and need extra support. First and foremost, I want to work with the Undocumented Student Program to improve academic counseling. I also want to work with the Student Learning Center to support the undocumented student program with academic advising. I want to work with the SLC to have a tutor dedicated to working with undocumented students.

Collaboration with the Undocumented Student Center

  • Thanks to the hard work of the undocumented student community on campus, the university will be expanding the undocumented student center. This will provide a safe space where undocumented students can study, go for resources, counseling etc. I hope to collaborate with the undocumented student center to hold workshops and community events in this space. I hope to organize workshops/panels that address mental health, financial aid and financial literacy, DACA, internship/job/graduate school preparation, and more. I hope to work with student organizations to hold events aimed at fostering community.

Create an Undocumented Alumni Network

  • Most undocumented students are the first in their family to go to college. Personally, my parents have an 8th grade education and I am the oldest in my family. I didn’t know what to expect when coming to college. As first generation students, we are at a disadvantage. And as undocumented students, this university is even harder to navigate. In order to better prepare undocumented students for college and life after college, I want to establish an undocumented alumni network. Connecting undocumented students with undocumented alumni will better help students to navigate college life, apply for jobs, and much more. To achieve this I will work closely with the career center, the Undocumented Student Program, and undocumented student organizations to create a support system for undocumented students.


Hello and Salams my Dear Cal Family,

My name is Yousef Moneer, and I am a Yemeni Refugee. I am just a guy who dreamed of coming to the United States but, once there, got banned from returning home to see his dying grandmother.

My journey with political and social activism started in 2011 when I was one of the first Yemeni youth to spark a revolution that took down the dictator who ruled the country for 33 years. College students and high-schoolers including myself protested and occupied public places. We set up tents in Change Square and occupied public spaces. I lived the revolution; I was exposed to violence, inhaled tear gas, and watched bullets taking the lives of unarmed people around me. I witnessed the dreams of my people being shattered and I muttered to myself, “I need to create better lives for my people.” I was moved and inspired. The revolution broadened my perspective, shaped my personality, and made me change the direction of my life to fully dedicate it to uplifting and empowering my community that has been oppressed for years.

I carried my ambitions and dreams into the United States, taking upon myself the responsibility to uplift my community and represent their voices. I saw first hand how my communities were not represented in vital political spaces. Muslims like myself were not at the table when decisions like the Muslim Ban were being made and this issue is what took me to the streets. Right after the announcement of the Muslim Ban, I went down to SFO airport to join thousands in protest against this unjust and racist policy. As a Yemeni Muslim, I have been directly and personally impacted by this decision. Issues like the Muslim Ban are what inspired me to run for this campaign, but it doesn’t stop there.

As your future Senator, I will recenter the issues of underrepresented communities. First, I plan to address the ignored Muslim Ban through the creation of a policy advocacy team and resource provision for folks directly and indirectly impacted. Second, I will work to provide sanctuary spaces for the refugee community on and off-campus through mental health accommodations and mentorship programs. Third, I will facilitate a smoother transition for nontraditional and transfer students by prioritizing their needs on campus and centralizing access to resources. Finally, I will focus on empowering the international community and its cultural diversity through professional development and supporting cross-cultural programming on campus clubs.

This is an opportunity to ensure that our voice will be represented in the Senate and that our stories remain powerful.

In solidarity,

Yousef Moneer
