Johns Hopkins Commencement and Graduation Committee: Give us a female 2013 Hopkins Commencement Speaker

Over the past fifteen years, Mayor Bloomberg has spoken twice at JHU commencement ceremonies. Over the same period, there have been only two female commencement speakers. No woman of color delivered an address during this time. Let the university administration and commencement committee know that it is time for our speaker to reflect our diverse student body. Sign this petition, email commencement@jhu.edu, and schedule an appointment to let the university know that this is unacceptable!
