Draw or type a protest sign in the space above. Together with organizers of UC Cops Off Campus we are collecting signs now through October 1st to be used in a virtual protest. Each submitted sign will held up by a 3d avatar and visible to everyone. Make your voice heard! As more visitors participate, the protest goes from a trickle to a torrent.
The virtual protest will be livestreamed at twitch.tv/protestgenerator on October 1st at 6:30pm and projected on campuses in the University of California system
The UC Cops Off Campus movement is an abolitionist campaign calling for the abolition of the UCPD across all 10 University of California campuses by Fall 2021. The movement emerged amidst a global pandemic, relentless state and vigilante violence against Black, brown, and Indigenous people, and national calls for abolition. The movement to get cops off campus is led by BIPOC community members, faculty, students, and graduate and other workers across UC and CSU. campuses.
The University of California, as the largest land grant university in the country and as a research base for the U.S. military, has long perpetuated settler and carceral logics in California and internationally. We demand a different university: rooted in building an abolitionist infrastructure with colleagues, students, and community members that will negate campus police as a viable institution while moving us toward the decolonization of the university, and the full abolition of the profit model that drives higher education in the United States.
