Why We Protest: Stories of Survivors

CONTENT WARNING: SEXUAL ASSAULT, SEXUAL HARASSMENT, STALKING

 

Princeton’s current Title IX system is broken. We have collected the following anonymous stories and statements from Princeton student survivors who have been re-traumatized and betrayed by this system. This is not to mention the highly publicized cases, here, here, and here, which led to a probe from the US Department of Education in 2014. We protest to stand with these individuals and many others - to make sure that Princeton finally implements a Title IX system that protects survivors, not perpetrators.

Here are 34 stories of survivors at Princeton who have directly affected by the negligence of Princeton’s Title IX processes.

They are your peers, your colleagues, your friends, your neighbors.
