The JHU Garland Sit-In: #FreedomCampus

$12,315 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 357 people in 25 days
Created April 27, 2019
JHU Sit-In
***UPDATE: 7 of us were arrested on the morning of May 8th.  We may need additional donations for our bail and legal fund.***

On April 3, 2019, JHU students and Baltimore community members began a sit-in at Garland Hall at 1pm. Students Against Private Police (SAPP) and Hopkins Coalition Against ICE joined forces to organize the sit-in which started hours before a rally and march in collaboration with West Wednesday. The West Coalition has been holding weekly protests since 2013 demanding justice for Tyrone West, a black man who was killed by police including a Morgan State University officer. On the first day of the sit-in, Tawanda Jones, the sister of Tyrone West, led the rally of hundreds of community members to meet the protesters occupying Garland Hall, projecting Tyrone West’s image onto the building, chanting and cheering us on, while we did the same from inside. Since then the outpouring of solidarity and support from the community has only grown and led to what has become the longest occupation in JHU’s history.

We, the JHU Garland Sit-in, are demanding that the university
1) Withdraw its plans to create an armed JHU private police force,
2) End its contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) which generate $1.7 million per year for the university since 2008,
3) Recognize the police murder of Tyrone West by Baltimore police officers, including a Morgan State University officer, and demand justice and accountability for Tyrone West.

We are so grateful to everyone who has supported us in the first month of the sit-in by donating food, supplies and money.  We rely on supporters near and far to continue this occupation, and we have no intention of leaving until President Ron Daniels agrees to negotiate with us.

***Donations would be used to provide sit-in participants with food, hygiene supplies/toiletries, bedding, etc.***
