We, the undersigned, petition Brick Street Bar and Grill and 45 East, to change or discontinue their current dress code policy that is purported to make customers feel safer. We feel it is a racist and class-based dress code. Furthermore, we question the policy\'s efficacy, and suggest instead, traditional methods of weapon detection such as, metal detectors and wands. Please be advised we are boycotting these establishments as long as the current dress code is in effect.
Please note-this petition is limited to students of Miami University of Ohio and residents of Oxford, Ohio. If you have signed a paper copy of the petition, please do not sign this petition.
This petition is sponsored by the Coalition for Uptown Equality, and supported by the Black Student Action Association. We are a group dedicated to bringing a group of students with broad perspectives and ideas together to peacefully lobby and negotiate for real change.
