Here is some more information on our team and our goals:
Who are we?
We are four members of the UCSC Feminist Studies Department who are working to raise funds for fired graduate students.
Where are we from?
Santa Cruz, CA and Durham, NC
What is our relationship to the fired workers?
Two of us are fired workers ourselves and two of us are other employed workers in the department who are supporting our fired colleagues.
How will the funds be used?
Funds will be disbursed directly to the fired workers, adjusted to account for which workers have the greatest needs at or near the beginning of Spring quarter (around April 1, 2020). Need will be based on factors including need to pay tuition to retain visa status; need for health care; and support of lost wages.
How will the funds be disbursed?
Neel Ahuja will withdraw and deposit campaign funds into his bank account. From there, the funds will be distributed directly to the fired workers via Venmo or check.
