While coronavirus may be keeping us at home, life goes on. During the recent UCLA USAC election, GCGP UCLA waged a successful campaign leading to the passage of the GCGP Basic Needs Referendum. The referendum, which passed resoundingly with 75% voters in approval, asked for an increase of $1 in annual school fees per student to fund GCGP’s provision of hygiene and school supplies for any UCLA student in need. The passage of the referendum provides $25000 for GCGP’s redistribution initiative and institutionalizes the provision of hygiene products and school supplies at UCLA .
We would like to thank all who have worked tirelessly or shown support, both on this campaign and at our center, to aid students in need. We’re excited to continue working with the UCLA community to serve all Bruins!
Student leaders in the Louisville Metro area chapter of Good Clothes Good People have been working hard, dropping off donations from three of our Louisville locations, Meyzeek Middle School, duPont Manual Magnet High School, and St. Michael’s Church. Dozens of bags of donations have been collected so far!
The UCLA Chapter of Good Clothes Good People recently opened a distribution center in the Student Activities Center Basement. In the few short months that the center has been open, it has served hundreds of UCLA students in providing necessities such as clothing, menstrual products, interview wear, and hygiene products. According to data, 44.5% of respondents visit the center 1-2 times per week. Every day since the center has been open, there have been both donations and people coming in to utilize the center. GCGP has collaborated with a long list of other student-led organizations, including but not limited to
