I'm so glad that a group of students have joined Columbia University's Emma Sulkowicz in bringing awareness to this issue. She is a survivor herself and what began as Sulkowicz's project for school has the power to become a movement on campuses nationwide.
According to Columbia Spectator, "The collective carry was organized by Carrying The Weight Together, a group of students and alumni who want, according to the group's site, "to help Emma carry the weight of the physical mattress, give her and other survivors of sexual assault in our community a powerful symbol of our support and solidarity, and show the administration that we stand united in demanding better policies designed to end sexual violence and rape culture on campus." Emma plans to carry the mattress around on campus until her alleged rapist is no longer on campus. Read and see more (tweets and activism) on The Huffington Post about support for Emma Sulkowicz.
