I #StandWithLeah because the policies of an elite school should AID, not HINDER sexual assault survivors.

#StandWithLeah b/c I’m sick of a culture that allows rapists to ~follow their dreams~ when survivors have to live with nightmares forever. — Annie (@peace_windmill) June 5, 2014

I #StandWithLeah because I believe Stanford should be strong enough to listen to a survivor who is strong enough to speak out — anna-lisa (@analocaa) June 5, 2014
