Report: What Followed The Reclaim Our Grounds Demands & What’s Next?

Following the release of the “Reclaim our Grounds” demand, there’s been an explosion of activity. UVa student council has endorsed the demands and the first three demands have been implemented. These included the removal of Confederate plaques on the Rotunda, the declaration of the lawn as a residential space and the payback of a 1921 $1000 gift given by the KKK to the university.

We talked to Raiya Al-Nsour Vice-Chair of Advocacy of the Minority Rights Coalition and Sarah Kenny, President of Student Council about the events which followed after Student Council’s endorsement of the demands and what is happening in the future.
