UCLA students Vote for Divestment

In a huge victory, the student council at UCLA passed the divestment resolution put forth by SJP in an 8-2-2 vote (2 abstentions). This makes UCLA the SIXTH UC campus out of 9 to have passed a divestment resolution! The fight will now go to the UC system at large. The opposition to the resolution, led by Hillel UCLA, spent enormous amounts of money, including hiring a DC based PR firm, to try to defeat the resolution. But our side prevailed purely on the power of the arguments that SJP and supporters provided.

Onward and Upward!
