Peaceful Protest in honor of Jane Doe at the University of North Alabama
The University of North Alabama recently released a callous statement regarding the current rape lawsuit against them by Jane Doe. This statement perpetuates rape culture and victim blaming. UNA’s nonchalant dismissal of the cover up of a rape by a professor should not be tolerated. Join fellow students in a peaceful protest and show your support for Jane Doe by advocating to end campus rape culture. We will be wearing white shirts that say “Believe Rape Survivors”. You can make your own, or order one (see discussion a few posts back on how to order). Please wear your shirt either Wednesday, Thursday, or both, depending on your class schedule. We will be having a peaceful walk through campus during The Big Deal on August 24th at 6:30pm. All supporters of rape and sexual assault survivors are invited to attend. We will be meeting outside of the amphitheater, and I will release an exact starting location closer to time. We will provide more details as we know them. Thank you and please share this event with your friends.
