Rally for consent at Syracuse University!

Wednesday, September 17
12:00 pm
The steps of Hendricks Chapel
Main quad, Syracuse University

*All community members welcome!

In a swift, undemocratic move, the Syracuse University administration closed The Advocacy Center (AC) on June 4. Not only did the AC provide crucial services for victims of sexual assault and relationship violence--helping victims become survivors and advocates--but it was a community that had been built and sustained by volunteers, students, staff, and faculty.

The administration did not ask for our consent when they shut down this center. They announced the closure 5 days before it happened at a time when most students were away from campus. The timing and pace of the closure prohibited democratic discussion and student input from taking place.

Fortunately, a group of students and their supporters worked through the summer to identify gaps left by the closing of the AC. The administration has listened to and addressed some of these concerns, but there is much more that we can do to support survivors and end rape culture on campus. Come voice your concerns.

Join students, faculty, staff, and community members as we demand:

  • The prompt creation of a standalone center for advocacy and education on campus
  • No more decisions about us without us! Student input and participation now!

Organized by: The Campaign for an Advocacy Center at SU
Sponsored by: A Men's Issue, ANSWER Coalition, CCR Graduate Circle, Divest SU, Graduate Student Organization, Labor Studies Working Group, Student Association, SASSE, Students of Sustainability
