Exactly one month ago, we launched SpeakOut! Brandeis and received an overwhelmingly positive response from our entire community. We are deeply humbled that only four weeks later, as a response to the brave voices of survivors coming forward to share their experiences, a group of students has decided to come up with an incredible and thorough proposal to make Brandeis a safer place for all of us.
Our voices as survivors and supporters of survivors are being heard - with the courage and support of all of you, WE HAVE HELPED SHATTER THE SILENCE!
We are in awe and admiration of everyone in this community who is working tirelessly to ensure that needed and indispensable change is underway.
** PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!! **
Let’s stand together and help combat sexual assault, violence and harassment on our campus!

She smoked in her room and colored her hair”
