Support the ‘Prince’

Please disable ad blockers for our domain. Thank you!

We, the undersigned students, alumni, and faculty of Princeton  University, stand in solidarity with Dr. Vanessa Tyson ‘98. We believe  Dr. Tyson‘s allegations that Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax  sexually assaulted her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in  Boston.

Lieutenant Governor Fairfax has categorically denied these allegations and has opted to demonize Dr. Tyson. We demand his immediate  resignation, as both the alleged assault and his vicious attacks on Tyson are disqualifying for a public servant.

Dr. Tyson‘s decision to share her story with the public earlier this week is a courageous one. In her written statement, Dr. Tyson said, “I felt a responsibility to myself, the beloved students I teach, and the brave women I‘ve tried  to help overcome their own trauma.” Dr. Tyson has demonstrated fortitude  and integrity, serving as an example to the Princeton community, Virginia, and the nation, as a whole. We thank her for her bravery.

This week, we have been disappointed by the leadership of  Virginia. The failures of Governor Northam, Lieutenant Governor Fairfax, and Attorney General Herring serve as a reminder that we need more women, people of color, and especially women of color in office.
