Updates from Hardy House

As of 10 this morning, students have continued to reconceptualize Hardy House as a space for the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center. Since 9 PM last night we have had over 40 students come to help in this endeavor and over a dozen students spent the night brainstorming and responding to comments and questions regarding the homophobic incident that occurred and the student-led response.

We will continue to remain in Hardy House until the demands previously posted are met by the Administration.

Moreover, students have contacted President-Elect Adam F. Falk, Interim President William Wagner, the Dean’s Office, Campus Safety and Security, and the Admissions Office regarding our demands. We have also notified student newspapers, Multicultural Centers, Women’s Centers and LGBTQ organizations at our peer institutions such as MCLA, Amherst, Wesleyan, Yale, Dartmouth and Brown about the incident and provided them with copies of our letter to the Williams Community and the list of demands. Similarly, we have sent copies of these documents to The North Adams Transcript, the Berkshire Eagle, The New York Times and the Boston Globe. We are currently working on contacting college-news related websites such as Collegeprowler.com and The Princeton Review.

Please stay tuned to this website for udpates.
