Jun 3, 2020 — 

A letter was sent to Georgetown University Senior leadership who have the power to answer to our demands. Please keep sharing and voice your concerns through this petition. Let us remind the University that they, too, will be held accountable. Let us remind them that their actions will say a lot more than their words of sympathy.

 

List of Senior Leadership Contacted:

Office of the President (presidentsoffice@georgetown.edu)

Dean William M. Treanor, Law Center (wtreanor@law.georgetown.edu)

David Maro, Law Center, Associate Vice President for Administration (maod@georgetown.edu)

Provost Robert Groves (provost@georgetown.edu)

Rosemary Kilkenny, Vice President for Institutional Diversity & Equity (kilkennr@georgetown.edu)



Letter that was sent earlier today:

"In less than 24 hours, the Georgetown University community, along with DC area residents, have signed this petition to ask Georgetown University to no longer Contract with Police Departments. With every hour, more evidence of police brutality comes to the surface; police attacking peoples of color and inciting violence at peaceful protests, police attacking journalists and the media, and police attacking New York State Senator Zellnor Myrie. They have no limit or respect for basic human rights.

As a Georgetown University graduate, I do not believe that Georgetown University, including all of its Schools, should rely or contract with Police Departments. During my time at Georgetown, I was asked and questioned too many times by GUPD. I feared them, and this fear worsened at the sight of the Metropolitan Police Department. Although I am not a Black person, nor do my struggles compare to theirs, I still stand with them. The University should too. Let's rely on our Jesuit values, which have been preached to us by University Senior Leadership, and stand up for this cause. We look to see action from Senior administrators by the end of the week."
