UCSB’s Chancellor Yang Endorses Project We Own It

November 2, 2012

Dear Abby,

Thank you for alerting me to the decision of the Isla Vista Food Cooperative to purchase the building as a permanent home for the Co-op and to the “Project We Own It” campaign.

I understand that you are working closely with Associated Students on an arrangement to supplement the money you have already raised. Congratulations—the outpouring of support is a testament to the many contributions the Co-op makes to the health and welfare of all the members of our community.

I send you and all the Co-op members my best wishes for a successful outcome to the campaign to preserve a large piece of Isla Vista history, now and for future generations.


Henry Yang
