As a financially and editorially independent student newspaper, The Harvard Crimson has been working around the clock to cover Harvard and the city of Cambridge during this crisis. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support The Crimson and our student journalists.
Title IX has given survivors a voice, and Harvard is listening, but without proper enforcement, students who experience sexual violence will no longer be given the time and support they need to heal and continue their educations.
Although Our Harvard Can Do Better takes no position on fossil fuel divestment, it is neither our wish nor our place, as a campaign tackling one particular power structure, to purport to model the sole responsible form of activism on this campus.
Because students and survivors are the ones who feel the impact of the systemic failures of the Harvard’s policy and programming around sexual violence, they have a crucial contribution to make in identifying the most important changes.
