Here is Leat Ahrony’s application for UVSS Board SOCC Representative:

“Dear SOCC collective, I am so happy first of all that we past the referendum and we now receive funding from the UVSS. As a past SOCC rep, I feel it is extremely important to have a collective voice of the BOD of UVSS because that is where important and often impactful decisions are made. It has come to my attention that there isn’t a lot of SOCC members here in the summer, and it would be unwise to keep our spot empty. The New executive directors of 2015-16 will officially take their positions on Monday, May 4th, and summer time is a crucial time to build the relationships and foster collaboration.

That said, I am happy to take on the role of the SOCC rep (i.e. nominate myself) for the summer term. If the collective is willing, As a minority, and a person of color, we must not lose our presence, and continue our advocacy in all fronts.”
