Statement of Solidarity: Student Organization of Latinos

The Student Organization of Latinos not only stands in solidarity with the hunger strikers, but we hunger with them. We envision, and furthermore demand, a university that respects and values all communities, whether they be communities of color, the queer community or the immediately surrounding community of West Harlem. As Latino students, an underrepresented group at this University, we feel these pangs deeply.

We fail to see the histories and struggles of our people properly legitimized and embraced in our administrative offices, our classrooms and in our community in Harlem.

We think it shameful that students must risk and sacrifice so much for something so basic. Our prayers and actions are with the strikers, their well-being and the well-being of this campus.
