The (insert organization/individual name), stands firmly with Laya, a University of
California, Los Angeles graduate student, for speaking out against, University of
California (UC) Student Regent, Jesse Cheng, who allegedly sexually battered
and attacked her on October 3, 2010.

The Justice for Laya Coalition is a growing collective of students and student
organizations from various UC campuses as well as community members and
groups across the state.

We in the Justice for Laya Coalition condemn Student Regent Cheng’s alleged
acts and ask that he no longer represent the “student voice” of over 200,000
undergraduate, graduate and professional students on the Board of UC Regents.
His actions misrepresent the UC student body and do a disservice to the
advocacy and organizing of student activists across California and the United

The Justice for Laya Coalition demands that:

1) University of California Student Regent Jesse Cheng be removed from his
post immediately
2) Laya receive full legal justice
3) Women’s Resource Centers on University of California campuses be
retained and funded
