As students committed to resisting sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, and other systems of oppression at Stanford University, we are in solidarity with our peers who carried out a protest at Dartmouth College’s admit weekend. We are outraged at the violent harassment they have been met with, including threats to their personal safety, as well as other aggressive and oppressive remarks. They have brought important conversations to the Dartmouth student body regarding sexual violence, harassment, and racism. The reactions the protestors are receiving demonstrate the need for their action and continued resistance.
We oppose violence. We maintain solidarity with everyone who has been silenced, everyone who is hurting, everyone who acknowledges the need for change, both at Dartmouth and here at Stanford.
