Support from University of Washington Law

Uncategorized

“Hi Georgetown Law Coalition Members,

I wanted to let you know that the University of Washington Law Students walked out today along with hundreds of other graduate and undergraduate students. We interrupted the daily routine to draw attention to a national problem of racialized state violence, and a crisis at the University of Washington of institutional oppression and white supremacy. We gathered and presented demands to various administrations to address racial inequity on our campus. 

I am writing to you to let you know that your demand letter and website inspired us in the drafting and formulating of our demands. We stand in solidarity with you, and all of the other students who are determined to speak up until their voices are heard, until they matter. 

Below is a tumblr page with stories from students about their experiences at UW Law, and a wordpress with our demand list.
