On Wednesday, October 29, students, staff, and faculty of colleges across the country will stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual and domestic violence, inspired by the activism and art of Emma Sulkowicz, who is boldly carrying a dorm mattress around campus with her as long as her rapist continues to attend Columbia University. Learn more about it here.
Yale was one of the first campuses to stand in solidarity. On Friday, September 26 the Yale Women’s Center and allies came together to stand in solidarity with Emma Sulkowicz and all survivors of sexual assault. We believe that the entire campus should help to prevent sexual assault, support survivors, and work to improve campus culture. It’s on us to help #carrythatweight.
