Statement and demands of protesting women during speakout
About 250 women gathered on Wriston Quad to speak out about sexual harassment and sexual assault on Brown’s campus. They called out the Greek fraternities on campus and all individuals who are complicit to the sexual violence that they are a bystander to. They also issued a set of demands to the University.
Latin American Student Association (LASO) Student Demands
Although undated, these demands were also issued in 1985 to bring attention to the specific needs of the Latinx community at Brown.
Date: [ 04-05-1985]
Black, Asian, and Latino students gathered at the John Carter Brown Library to call attention to the unmet demands of ’68 and ’75. Their demands addressed minority faculty, minority admissions, financial aid, and student support services. The demands were also the boiling point of a series of racial incidents that occurred at Brown over several years and that the University failed to address.
24. Corporation’s response (to demands)
President Donald Hornig and Brown’s Corporation wrote a response to the Coalition’s proposal.
General Proposals of the coalition
The Student Coalition, a group of Third World students that organized to reorder the priorities of the 1975-76 budget, issued a set of demands to the university. They advocated for no budget cuts to the areas of financial aid, faculty teaching time, and student services.
The Organization of United African People, formerly the Afro-American Society issued a set of demands to reiterate the original demands of 1968 that had still been unmet. Black students also called for the University to demonstrate its commitment to the Black community.
