Letter to the Editor: The ‘Prince’ should seek out Katz’s defenders, too

From my perspective, characterizing support for Professor Katz as coming from a “handful” of professors or “at least one alumnus” is likely a gross distortion.

An open letter from members of the Princeton Swimming and Diving community on Lia Thomas’s right to swim

“As members and alumni of the Princeton swimming and diving team, we write this letter to clarify that the exclusionary and discriminatory viewpoints expressed by those swimmers do not speak for our entire community.”

We Call BS Rally

4 years later, we are still marching for our lives

“We cannot and must not continue to ignore gun violence. If we are to imagine a more just and equitable world, then we must begin by disarming hate and finally addressing gun violence.”

Princeton must change its room draw process. Here’s why.

The University administration ought to recognize the parts of the room draw process that are causing inconveniences, listen to its students’ suggestions, and improve room draw in future years.

In defense of The New York Times: A response to Rohit Narayanan ’24

“While it’s true that student activists had little to do with Princeton’s recent decision to fire Katz, as Narayanan alleges, it’s a farce to pretend that the decision was free of political bias.”

I'm a pro-life woman and student at Princeton. Here's where the pro-life movement needs to go next.

“Although overturning Roe, in my opinion, is a move in the right direction, it does not and should not be the end of the pro-life movement’s efforts. We need to support women who become pregnant, so that they are not forced to make a decision that they will regret or that could harm themselves or others.”

Community service at Princeton must move beyond lip service

“For students who do participate in service activities, there is a strong support system for direct community service through the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and its programming. However, there is clearly a disconnect between the center and students that facilitates a leaky pipeline in direct community service participation.”

PSRJ Protest Sign

An open letter from women of Class of ’72 on their classmate Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked reversal of Roe v. Wade

“We are about to celebrate our 50th reunion — half a century since we graduated from Princeton. We find it bitter indeed to see the draft Supreme Court opinion reverse the strides we thought we were making, as part of one of the first classes of Princeton women, towards a world of equity and fairness for women of all races and social and economic positions.”

On the absurdity of ‘deeply rooted’ tradition

“Even when I (correctly) cite the legal precedent of English common law to uphold Roe, I am acquiescing to the premise that our rights depend on the imperfect actions of imperfect people in the past. But, as we know, history cannot show us what justice and equality for Black Americans or LGBTQ+ Americans should look like.”

Princeton can't solve the mental health crisis without divesting from fossil fuels

“The irony of supporting mental health in a dying world seems lost on the people elected to make the most difficult decisions, in the same way as it’s ignored by University officials. Curing depression and anxiety is essentially impossible in the context of a global climate emergency and the constant reminder that the Earth is dying, and that we will, too.”

“With this letter, some of Maria Ressa’s 1986 classmates invite you to join us in taking a very simple step to do that, by subscribing to her news organization, Rappler+.”

More heat than light: performative activism, on campus and beyond

“Each of us has causes that are dear to us. But when we are confronted by those focusing on Instagram posts or publicly inflammatory comments instead of on the issues themselves, we must remind ourselves not to lose sight of why we care in the first place, and of the hard, nuanced work that is necessary to achieve tangible progress.”

Letter from the Editor: Help us understand how best to serve you

“With each passing year, new issues land on our pages, while others are reborn from previous generations. Unlike our predecessors, however, today’s student journalists must think in equal parts about how to capture these stories and deliver them to our readers.”

Burn down the eating clubs

“It doesn’t matter if a club’s membership brands itself as woke, progressive, liberal, inclusive, chill, or diverse: they largely fail to look past their own moral superiority to see that they actively recreate the same racist, sexist, exclusionary dynamics that they claim to be against.”

The Editorial Board should know better than to blame “both sides.” Activism for Palestine lost out.

“It did not hesitate, however, to equate Palestine activists with their opposition in actions for which only the latter are responsible.”
