Statement of Solidarity: Take Back the Night

We at Take Back the Night stand in solidarity with the hunger strikers at Columbia, because we recognize the connections between institutional racism and violence in our community and because we know how deeply interconnected racism, sexism, and homophobia are. We believe that in order to foster a safe, supportive, and inspiring community of minds and bodies, we must uproot all forms of institutionalized violence. Thus, the strikers demands are crucial for creating an equally safe and empowering environment for students and residents alike. By reclaiming and creating safe spaces, we begin to be powerful and can foster alliances between communities within and beyond the Gates.
