Stop UC Davis from killing an African American student

      Brittany Delany

This petition is to bring support to the extreme amount of ongoing harassment and hostile treatment faced by students of color.

Extreme actions have been happening to one African-American student at UC Davis.  Verbal abuse, manipulation of his grades and course enrollment, removal of financial aid and PhD --all these terrible actions have been perpetrated against this student without due process and investigation. He has fought to complete his education, and stand up against this injustice in the department and campus, which has affected many other students of color like him.

A recent event:
Financial Aid send him a note stating he will be on probation from his Financial Aid during Fall 2013 because he had been an MFA student for too long (1yr over).  He showed them proof of his PhD status and they revoke the probation.  Coming to the end of Fall 2013 Financial Aid states that he would be on probation for Winter 2013 for the same reason.  He looks to get proof that shows he is a PhD student and it is gone.  He had informed the President and Chancellor office that Graduate studies and his departments are constantly tampering with his degree and financial aid were intentionally attacks to frustrate his life.
It is only when an official from the chancellors office spoke to the Dean that the Dean returned his PhD student status.  His department reluctantly admits him to the program.  However, the financial aid status that was on probation is revoked again.

At this point, the student believes that graduate studies, financial aid and his department will continually scheme to threaten his life until he gives up.

Your participation will help eradicate abusive and detrimental behavior towards this student and support universities in becoming positive examples for a better world. Please spread the word and stand up against this injustice.
