Last week, Emerson President Lee Pelton issued a campus-wide letter addressing a string of sexual assaults revealed on the anonymous Facebook page “Emerson Confessionals.”
The posts were brought to Pelton’s attention by a letter writing campaign organized by another Facebook group, “Emerson Students Stepping up to Sexual Assault,” created by freshman journalism major Sarah Tedesco.
Reporter Nick de la Canal spoke with Jillian Doherty, a sophomore writing, literature, and publishing major who helps maintain “Emerson Students Stepping up to Sexual Assault.”
Doherty has also created a separate, private Facebook group exclusively for sexual assault victims at Emerson.
