On Thursday, a number of UC Santa Barbara student organizations held a demonstration in the Arbor in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault, following the recent sexual assault allegations against fraternity Sigma Pi. The primary event organizers – Eli Diaz, Alana Ulloa and Kyremina Youssef – began planning the event on Monday, starting with two organizations and eventually growing to 15.
Organizers presented attendees with a Google Form that asked people their name and affiliation with UCSB or Isla Vista. The form also prompted them to answer the question, “What demands would you like to see be enacted on campus and in Isla Vista?”
Nexus photographers captured several photos of the demonstration, seen below:
