We are calling on you to stand up and make your voice heard. It has recently come to our attention that space within the Black House is being utilized for office space for other student organizations. The primary concern is that instead of increasing resources for the Black House and Black students, they are diluting direct services to Black students. The full correspondence can be viewed here.
As such, we are calling on YOU to let your voice be heard. Please take part in two simple campaigns:
Campaign 1 – Reach out to Northwestern Leadership, please speak from the heart but here are some NUBAA Talking pointsv2 to help frame your correspondence. Let NU leadership know what the Black House means to you
- President Morton Schapiro firstname.lastname@example.org, 847 491 7456
- Provost Dan Linzer email@example.com 847-491-5117
- VP of Student Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin, firstname.lastname@example.org 847-491-5360
Campaign 2 – #Myblackhouse campaign, student and alum to post a video telling what the Black House means/have meant to you. The videos should be posted on all social sites.
