Santa Barbara Progressive Coalition started this petition to SBCC Board of Trustees

Santa Barbara City College is one of our community's most valuable resources for affordable, high-quality education.  SBCC's mission statement states, "The College is committed to fostering an equitable, inclusive, respectful, participatory, and supportive community dedicated to the success of every student."

Area 3 Trustee Veronica Gallardo has failed to live up to this mission by voting NO on anti-racist measures before the SBCC Board of Trustees.  As such, we DEMAND that Trustee Gallardo RESIGN from the board immediately to protect Black students, faculty, and staff.

Trustee Veronica Gallardo has rejected our community's pleas to reckon with systemic racism in higher learning and consistently dismisses and minimizes the devastating effect of systemic racism and violence on the lived experiences of Black SBCC students, faculty, and staff.

These actions are inconsistent with SBCC's mission and our community's values and Trustee Gallardo must resign.
