We, the students of the University of California Santa Cruz, are writing to notify you of our concern with the use of conflict minerals from eastern Congo in our electronics products. We have a large group of students here who are focused on making our University conflict-free, and we support the action of our State Legislature in passing a conflict-free resolution. We urge the SEC to now do the same and to issue strong rules and regulations in line with the statutory language of Section 1502 in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act.
