As many of you may be aware, over the last couple of weeks many student from The Brooklyn Latin School have bravely shared their experiences with sexual assault, many of which involved assault by another student. It is imperative that we address this and make it clear that enough is enough. In addition to the safe space created by Voices of TBLS, we are bringing this matter directly to the school. 

The Brooklyn Latin School continues to perpetuate rape culture through it’s lack of intervention, the lack of accountability for abusers, the complicity of students, and the abuse and harassment that survivors face. We, current students and alumni of TBLS, have created a list of demands that need to be implemented for the Fall 2020 school year to create a safer and healthier school environment.

Our demands include:

A formal apology from the school administration to survivors 
Addressing student safety and how student reports are handled
Addressing the school culture (i.e. hiring practices, dress code, education on consent, restorative justice practices, and more)
Addressing the school curriculum
