BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)– Survivors of sexual assault spoke with legislators behind closed doors about their experiences on LSU’s campus.
State Senator Regina Barrow (D) said it boiled down to students not feeling safe, issues with campus culture, and the administration mishandling these cases.
They met at the LSU’s Senate Chamber on campus to make this meeting accessible to any students who wanted to be there.
Barrow said, “I want to make sure we get this right. I want to make sure my grandchild or anyone else’s child feels comfortable and safe when they go to any university. so we have that commitment from all 144 members.’”
She said that they don’t expect this problem to be solved overnight, but they are hoping for things to change.
This is an ongoing conversation between lawmakers and the LSU Administration..
