Petition to keep VCU protests away from residence buildings
In light of recent events in our country, many students have gathered together in protest at night, filling the streets of Richmond and making quite a noise. While we recognize and support everyone's right to gather in peaceful protest, their proximity to the residence buildings is making students feel uncomfortable and unsafe in their own homes. The noise coming from these crowds is disrupting studies and other student activities and extends late into the night, keeping students from sleeping on school nights. We would like to file this petition to ask the Administration and Campus Security of VCU to consider enforcing a buffer zone between loud, mass protests and residence buildings.
