WOMXN’S HUB RESILIENCE REFERENDUM FEE INITIATIVE
Ensuring the stability and security of a Womxn’s Resource Center

Do you approve the creation of a $2.00 per undergraduate student per quarter fee ($6.00 annually), effective Fall Quarter 2020 and with annual inflationary increases starting in Fall Quarter 2021, to support the stability and expansion of Womxn’s Hub programs, resources, space development, and student staff salaries?

The Womxn’s Hub (W-Hub) is an open space on campus for all students to utilize as a place to study, relax, and have meaningful conversations with others. The student fees raised from this Referendum will be used so the WHub can continue expanding. Specifically, the funding will be used towards signature events, such as leadership summits, and offers informative programs related to student wellness and gender issues. Within the space, these fees will ensure student access to necessary resources, including menstrual hygiene products (different types of pads and tampons) and safe sex items (various forms of condoms, lubricant, etc.). In addition to these health items, the W-Hub is growing its library, which provides students with literature on issues regarding class, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, (dis)ability status, and more. Establishing a welcoming and friendly environment is very important to the space, and these fees will allow the W-Hub to continue working on space development to accommodate students’ needs. Finally, with this funding, the Womxn’s Hub will continue to value student labor by allocating an appropriate budget for student intern salaries.

● The fee will be charged to only undergraduate students.
● The fee will be assessed during the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters only, starting Fall 2020.
● The fees collected will be managed by the Womxn’s Hub. An audit of the use of these fees may be provided upon request.
● In accordance with campus practice, 33% of the fee will be returned to financial aid to help offset the cost of this fee for undergraduate students who are eligible for financial aid.
● Starting Fall 2021, the fee will increase annually based on the California Consumer Price Index (CPI) to offset the effects of inflation. The CPI will be taken from the California Department of Finance’s calendar year annual average of all urban consumers’ CPI-U.
● The Womxn’s Hub is responsible for providing an annual report to the Chancellor on its programming and operations to ensure the proper and effective use of the fees collected. In addition, this report will be presented to the ASUCI Senate. Upon request, this report shall be available.
● This fee will sunset (expire) on its 30th year (2049-50) unless the undergraduate student body reaffirms this fee. This fee can be reaffirmed as early as the 26th year (2045-46); otherwise, if there is no vote to reaffirm this fee by the end of its 30th year (2049-50), the fee will terminate.
● In order to pass, this referendum will require a 20% eligible undergraduate voter turnout rate during the ASUCI Spring Elections, of which 60% of those votes need to be Yes votes.

______ Yes, I support a new per quarter fee of $2.00 per undergraduate student for the Womxn’s Hub Resilience Referendum Fee Initiative.
______ No, I do not support a new per quarter fee of $2.00 per undergraduate student for the Womxn’s Hub Resilience Referendum Fee Initiative.
______ Abstain

Petitioner Statement:
I believe that these ASUCI members do not represent the UCI student body at large, having the gall to take almost 80% of our tuition which is supposed to go toward programs like the Fresh Needs Hub and the Dream Center and put it instead into Engineering who already receive grants and subsidies for their research projects and construction. The majority of the UCI do not support their policies and ASUCI is supposed to represent the student body, not use their positions to promote their ideologies at the expense of their electorate.
