Did Oxy Alert You?: Protest for a Better Alert System
On Monday, 2/25/2013, Oxy Administration was notified of a sexual assault that had occurred on Sunday, 2/24/2013. The Oxy Administration did not share this information with campus until local media reported about the incident. OSAC has been advocating for an emergency alert when any student reports a sexual assault. While the administration agreed to OSAC’s 12 Demands in November 2012, they did not follow through with the promise to execute #7: “Use Oxy’s Crime Alert System to Inform Campus of Reported Sexual Assaults.”
Students are not safe unless there is an effective system that alerts the campus population to the continuous threat that is represented by a rapist.
Rape is a crime.
PROTEST Oxy’s unacceptable response to this incident on Friday March 1, 2013 at 12:30PM at the Fountain. Facebook RSVP here.
