West Virgina Taking Some Action Regarding Megan Williams

Hat Tip: Angie at Nu Vision For A Nu Day

Two weeks ago, a group of students, faculty, and staff met in response to the heinous crimes committed against Ms. Megan Williams in Logan County. What evolved out of that initial discussion was a sense of urgency in requesting our elected officials to publicly denounce gender and racial violence. The group wanted to provide a forum for dialogue on issues related to Ms. Williams' case specifically, and issues of race and gender based violence generally.

As a result of the meeting, two things have happened - (1) members of the law school community have joined together to form a coalition tentatively named "The Coalition to End Race and Gender Violence"; and (2) a petition requesting Governor Manchin to provide leadership by speaking out against racial and gender violence is now posted on the internet. People all across this campus, the state, and the region have already begun to sign on to the statement. Please take a moment to read and sign our statement to Governor Manchin which can be accessed at http://www.PetitionOnline.com/mwlc0907/petition.html .

Also, please consider circulating the statement to all of your friends and family members.

Finally, if you are interested in either joining or participating in events sponsored by the Coalition please visit our Westlaw TWEN website listed under "Coalition to End Race and Gender Violence."

Thank you very much for your time and support.
