The group who marched to the SGA meeting wore black, and allies wore white.

A group of individuals marched across the Fort Hays State University (FHSU) campus to a Student Government Association (SGA) meeting on April 1 to address events of racism that have occurred on campus and to encourage the college to better address these issues.

Those included in this group were FHSU’s Black Student Union (BSU). The group was invited by SGA Legislative Affairs Director Cristal Rojas and other student senators to talk about their experiences with racism on campus.

The president and vice president of BSU shared stories of experienced racism on campus, including stories of those who did not want to come forward and an anonymous letter of a former member of a fraternity.

The main purpose of the march was for the group to share their stories with fellow student representatives and faculty and to drive them to action.
