Description
Includes materials relating to the Reverse Town Hall organized by Stanford University student groups, held September 10, 2020 via video chat.
Background
The Reverse Town Hall, held September 10, 2020 over Zoom video chat, was organized by Abolish Stanford, the Black Graduate Student Association, the Graduate Student Council, Sexual Violence Free Stanford, Stanford Basic Needs Coalition, Stanford Neighbor Accountability Coalition, Stanford Solidarity Network, and Stanford University, and Students for Workers' Rights. The event included a discussion of "A Roadmap to Reopening with Equity and Justice," a community-led plan for ensuring the well-being of Stanford's student body. The roadmap highlights multiple student movements and demands, including the departmentalization of African and African-American Studies, the defunding and disarmament of campus police, proactive advocacy and support for our noncitizen student community, fair implementation of the new Title IX regulations, the establishment and expansion of university resources dedicated to meeting students' basic needs, and a long-term COVID response plan for graduate students. Regina Wallace-Jones, Mayor of East Palo Alto, also spoke on the history of East Palto Alto and its relationship to Stanford University.
