Dear Swarthmore students,

SGO expresses its full support of Organizing for Survivors (O4S) and their demands for changes in Title IX policy. SGO stands with survivors and allies on Swarthmore’s campus and on campuses all over the country.

As representatives of the student body, it would be a disservice to those who have suffered mistreatment of their cases and denial of justice if SGO does not lend its voice to their concerns. We call on all proper administrative officials to respond in an adequate manner to the demands made by O4S.

We encourage students to continue discourse on the subject, press administrative officials on their views and join us all in demonstrating with O4S.

Sincerely,

Your Swarthmore Student Government Organization
