A march demanding distribution of $900 checks to the UC Santa Barbara student body was held on the afternoon of May 8, organized by the Young Democratic Socialists of America, a UC Santa Barbara student organization. The protesters began marching from the Storke Tower to Chancellor Yang’s residence in the southeastern corner of campus at around 2:30 p.m., weaving banners and chanting slogans along the way. As the crowd arrived at Yang’s house, several speakers expressed their frustrations over the lack of university-provided support for students during the pandemic. The protest ended with the protestors chalking the driveway to the residence with slogans such as, “Power to the Students” and “$900 now.”
