On November 11, 2014, members of the Ventura local and YPSL hit a Board of Trustees meeting for the Ventura County Community College District. They spoke about the ineffectiveness of a privatized cafeteria as it loses money and creates separation amidst staff, administration, workers, and students. They proposed a student run co-op as a solution and gave an update about Moorpark College's Co-op planning and research group's
endeavors and roadblocks. They also spoke up about the exploitation of their groundskeepers, custodians, and maintenance workers on campus; something they've discovered in their start up attempts. So far they are gaining nothing but support from the Board, their Associated Student Government Reps, and their Student Trustee, but the battle is far from won.
