HATE HAS NO HOME HERE

#theyre #not #sending #their #best #people

Open campus open ears open minds open hearts

Creating a safe haven for discourse and community

#a #total #and #complete #shutdown

Every person has a right to higher education

A right to be heard and learn and speak their minds

#blood #coming #out #of #her #eyes

Sharing the knowledge of research and data-backed facts

Questioning the beliefs yet still respecting the believers

#theyre #bringing #crime #theyre #racists

Using words to stand up against oppression

Using pen to sever through the sword

#id #like #to #punch #him #in #the #face

Equality is something not given but earned

Something not assumed but fought for

#coming #out #of #her #whatever

Double check your sources

Triple check your attitude

#im #building #a #wall

Screaming makes people deaf and close their ears

Silence makes people listen more to your words

#but #you #know #with #the #second #amendment

America was founded by immigrants for immigrants

Protecting the liberties and freedoms for anyone and everyone

#shutdown #of #muslims #entering

One nation under god indivisible

With justice and liberty for all

#building #a #wall

Enough.

You do not speak for Penn.

Love is love is love

You do not speak for Wharton.

Love is love is love

You do not speak for us.

Love is love is love

Hate has no home here.
