Students for the Resignation of Lou Anna K. Simon

Students for the Resignation of Lou Anna K. Simon

Former MSU physician, Larry Nassar, began working at the university in 1997. However, before that his sexual abuse toward women began in 1994 with his first known victim. Since then, more than 140 women have come forward about his sexual abuse. These women are our heroes and the main point of this protest is to honor their bravery and show that MSU students fully stand behind all survivors. Over 14, yes you read that right, 14!!!!!!!!!! MSU officials were made aware of his abuse during his time here at MSU. Within this time, reports reached Simon at least twice. Simon turned her back on these students, betraying their trust and igniting their pain. It is our turn to turn our backs on Simon. We must demand her resignation as it is clear her intentions are not beneficial for the students at the university. I do not feel safe with her as president, and neither should you. Come out to the rock Friday at 6pm, wearing Teal (the color for sexual assault awareness), bring your picket signs, or anything else to draw attention to this issue. If the university will not take matters into their own hands, we will. Please share this event with others. If anyone has any suggestions or anything they would like to add please contact admin! 

PLEASE KEEP THIS A PEACEFUL PROTEST.
ANYONE IS WELCOME!

Women's March

From: https://www.facebook.com/events/193884877838229/

 

Michiganders will unite one year later at the steps of the state Capitol on January 21, 2018 at 2pm, to celebrate the strides we've made so far and to make plans to build our future.

Please donate to make this event happen: https://www.youcaring.com/womensmarchmichigan-1025897

Women’s March Michigan recognizes that women make up less than 25% of the legislature in Michigan and that in order for women to be represented in policies, they must run for office. Women’s March Michigan will be recognizing women running for office in Michigan, on all levels, from all communities, of all political stripes from local school boards to the race for governor.
If you are a woman running for office in Michigan, please fill this out: https://goo.gl/forms/81pKQkH2flSLDMIF2

The Women’s March movement is intentionally focused on intersectionality. Like last year, our march will be diverse with members of all races, religions, gender identities, and sexual orientations represented. The opinions of our members - and the ways those opinions are expressed - will be just as diverse. Our focus is on showing the world that resistance to the oppression of women is stronger than ever before, and on mobilizing that resistance to change the systems that support that oppression. We are here to listen to women from marginalized communities that are feeling left out of the movement. We encourage daring discussions with people who experience the world and their personhood differently. Women’s March Michigan is excited to experience the conversation around pussyhats as part of that open dialogue.

We look forward to Power to the Polls, engaging with voters, empowering women to run for office, celebrating our successes in 2017, and inspiring those of us fighting in the trenches for justice, in 2018 and beyond.
