Alexa Schwartz and Tucker Reed attended a press conference in New York City yesterday to announce the filing of civil rights complaints against the University of Southern California, the University of California at Berkeley, Swarthmore College and Dartmouth College. Gloria Allred, who represents filers at Occidental College, mediated the press event.
The complaint against the University included stories documenting multiple violations against eleven named students (including Schwartz and Reed) as well as information regarding further violations experienced by over one-hundred other current and former Trojans. The 100-plus-page complaint was compiled by both SCAR members and WSA members, with invaluable guidance and support provided by allies at Occidental College and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The complaint is open to revision, and SCAR is still accepting stories and data from current students and staff as well as Trojan alumni. If you are interested in lending your support to the complaint, rest assured that you may do so anonymously by using our Title IX form here on the SCAR website.
