Article Information

Background Carleton had a string of reported sexual assaults on their campus and so the Coalition decided to publicly denounce their continued denial of a sexual assault centre.
Reason Metro was covering our protest.
Comment Although we didn't get a huge turnout, our impact was tremendous. We got lots of people honking their horns in support and there was a strong media presence.
Outcome Carleton continued to deny us a centre, but they were forced to respond and it put our work back in the public eye.
