The Georgetown University Student Association passed a resolution supporting the recently-launched student-run website StopCrimeNotParties.com on Sunday afternoon.
The bill, introduced by Speaker Adam Mortillaro (COL ’12) and Senator Colton Malkerson (COL ’13), both of whom are associated with the site, gives GUSA’s support to the efforts of the new site.
StopCrimeNotParties.com encourages students to report inappropriate behavior by MPD, SNAP, DPS, or neighbors toward students.
Full text of the resolution:
WHEREAS, the District of Columbia City Council, in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police Department, has recently enacted a new noise ordinance, of which that many in the Georgetown University have expressed concern; and,
WHEREAS, a group of students has created the “Stop Crimes not Parties” movement, involving an aggressive public relations campaign, directed at enhancing the position of college students in the District with regards to the new regulation; and
WHEREAS, the group’s website, StopCrimeNotParties.com, aims to educate students and provide them with an opportunity to report authority malfeasance with regard to the new noise law.
THE GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY SENATE,
DOES hereby support and endorse the efforts of this new movement, and encourage all students to visit the website and obtain a yard sign to show support for the Georgetown student body.
