Rally for Justice: Don't Let GW Protect Rapists

Survivors deserve justice. Join us Friday for an action to demand that GW support survivors and hold rapists accountable.

Senior Mark Favorito was found responsible for sexually assaulting Aniqa Raihan by GW’s Students Rights and Responsibilities (SRR) court. Dean of Students Peter Konwerski and Director of SRR Gabriel Slifka decided to lower his sanction from the recommended minimum suspension to “deferred suspension,” meaning he just needs to meet with the Title IX office twice to graduate alongside Aniqa. He is still employed at Lerner Health and Wellness, despite his coworkers and students saying it makes them feel unsafe. We demand that GW stop protecting rapists.

If you are unable to attend you can show support by contacting Dean of Students, Peter Konwerski.
Email him at peterk@gwu.edu
Tweet him at @GWPeterK
Call him at 202-994-6563
