Response to Let’s Act! Revealed Folder

Published by:

Friends,

VSU was targeted in a recently exposed “Let’s Act! Exposed” folder. We are appalled at the claims that undoubtedly was used to attack our organization and the Community Programs Office (CPO). Some of these claims include advocating to “INFILTRATE” our organization. “The ‘pawn bloc’ refers to the four organizations (AISA, PISA, APC, & VSU) that are directly controlled by the CPO’s influence”. This and other claims undermine years of VSU leadership and advocacy.

This is extremely urgent and we are asking that all of our members make it a priority to contact the USAC Election Board demanding an investigation at https://www.usac.ucla.edu/jboard/jboard.php.

You can also contact the Daily Bruin Chief Editor at aerickson@media.ucla.edu and the Opinion Editor at ndelgadillo@media.ucla.edu.

Attached you will find VSU’s response. If you have questions and concerns, please contact vsubruins@gmail.com.

Sincerely,
The Vietnamese Student Union
