“Parents should be afraid to send their 18-year-old freshman into a place where there is a one in three chance that they will become a victim of sexual violence.”
Justice Thomas is teaching at the school. The protest is being framed as a #MeToo thing. Do you you think it might have something to do with politics as well?

University of Florida students protest arrival of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
A Supreme Court Justice with previous sexual harassment allegations is here teaching at the University of Florida and some students are protesting his arrival.
We Believe Survivors Founder Sloane Henry said, “Parents should be afraid to send their 18-year-old freshman into a place where there is a one in three chance that they will become a victim of sexual violence.”
We Believe Survivors Founder Sloane Henry is referring to the university’s 2019 sexual assault and misconduct survey which found that 30.1 percent of undergraduate women at u-f have experienced non-consensual sexual contact.
This was a key point made at the protest over the arrival of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
UF Law Student Dalia Figueredo said, “We think that the first step toward changing that culture is creating a culture where survivors know that they will be believed and that their abusers will actually face consequences and that they wont be touted around because they are prestigious and powerful.”
