Do You Think CCSF Campus Police Should Be Armed?
MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
May 18, 2017 @ 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Room MUB 140
CCSF Ocean Campus
The proposal to arm campus police is on this week’s Participatory Governance Committee Agenda.
The PGC, comprised of 4 students, 4 faculty, 4 staff, 4 administrators, is the committee that forwards college-wide recommendations to the Chancellor who decides whether or not to forward to the Board of Trustees.
Chief Barnes will be giving a pro-arming presentation and then there will be public comment, deliberations and a vote. It will likely be a very close vote. The item will likely be addressed sometime between 4:30 pm and 6:00 pm. Speakers will likely be limited to one minute.
Please wear red, which is both our school’s color and it symbolizes the blood of victims of police violence. If you just show up wearing red that will help. Speaking is even better. You only need to identify yourself and say you are against the arming of campus cops.

Keep MUB for Students: Open Letter to the CCSF Board of Trustees
An Open Letter to the City College Board– Trustees, make clear our City College values: The Multi-Use Building must be preserved for students! In 2015, the special trustee running City College moved to lease 33 Gough St. to a real estate corporation that will demolish the building and build luxury condos. Now, of course, the administrative staff who work at 33 Gough must relocate. The administration was rushing ahead with a proposal to take over most of the MU for these offices. Scores of students and faculty came out to a Board of Trustees meeting in March to say that the Multi Use Building must be used for students, not for offices! Many speakers agreed that the first floor could be designated for a one-stop student services center with financial aid and testing, but the second and third floors must be kept for students! We need the Board of Trustees to set forth the principle that City College’s best classroom space must be kept for student use.
