Spelman College Investigating Hateful Notes Sent To LGBTQ Students

Some LGBTQ students at Spelman College say that someone slipped hateful notes under their dorm-room doors.

The school has launched a formal investigation, they interviewed victims and held hall meetings, but have been unable to determine who is responsible for the notes.
The college’s president, Mary Schmidt Campbell, sent out a letter to the Spelman community Tuesday addressing the incident.
 You are not Spelman College,” the letter said. “Spelman abhors your behavior.”
“Spelman will continue to open its arms to embrace all of our Spelman students whatever their gender identity, sexual orientation or gender expression,” Campbell wrote. “Spelman is love, justice and respect. You, the perpetrator, are not Spelman.”
Student Amber Warren and the LGBTQ community on Spelman has some demands they have issued to the university and are ready to protest if those demands are not met.
1. Including gender neutral bathrooms in resident halls
2. sensitivity training for faculty
3. Gender-inclusive housing.
