Over 100 Dartmouth students and faculty gathered on the Green in the rain this afternoon to discuss and speak out against sexual violence at the College. The event, called "In Solidarity Against Sexual Violence," was co-organized by Libby Goldman '18 and Leah Alpern '18.

During the event, students and faculty spoke about the graphic message threatening sexual violence that was found inside Kappa Delta Epsilon sorority house Wednesday night. Attendees gathered in a circle and shared thoughts and anecdotes about sexual violence on campus. According to the event's Facebook page, the event was organized to provide a safe space for community members to discuss, heal from and respond to messages alluding to violence and aggression.
