Associated Students Legislative Council met Wednesday night to do its good deeds for the week by throwing some money around.

The Council allocated a total of $1,807 to various student organizations. An A.S. representative also mentioned introducing a digital version of A.S. readers and notes.

A.S. Leg Council gave $527 to UCSB’s Women’s Ensemble Theater Troupe for the production of “The Vagina Monologues.” This money will be used to pay for program production and security, provided by CSO officers, for the shows on Feb. 21 and 22.

Asian Resource Center requested and received $780 to fund an event focusing on the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II and their resistance to the draft. The event is being held on Wednesday, Feb.19, and includes a viewing of a documentary and a visit from resistance leader Frank Emi, who will also discuss civil liberties during the war on terrorism.

“This is really important because not many people are aware of this issue,” Off-campus Representative Marshall Higa said.

Healthy Eating and Living Peers is putting on a series of events for Eating Disorder Week from Feb. 24 to 28. The group requested $535 and received $500 after Leg Council engaged in brief discussion. External Coordinator Danielle Endaya said it was important to talk about eating disorders.

“One in five UCSB students has an eating disorder,” Endaya said, citing the results of a survey of UCSB students from Fall Quarter 2002.

A.S. Student Lobby requested $1,000, but did not receive it, to help fund the expenses of bringing former Black Panther Dhoruba BinWahad to speak at UCSB.

“We want to show ‘Passin’ It On’ and have a student panel to discuss a variety of topics,” Off-campus Representative Gustavo Mendoza said. “Passin’ It On” is a film about the history of the Black Panther organization and focuses on the life of Bin Wahad.

After Wednesday’s meeting, A.S. Finance Board is now left with $2,431 of its unallocated funds for Spring Quarter to grant to student organizations.

In other news, Executive Director Don Daves-Rougeaux mentioned the possibility of selling A.S. readers and notes in a digital format.

“We’re looking at a proposal right now,” Daves-Rougeaux said. “These resources would be available in addition to the printed material that A.S. now provides.”
