Explore Activism @ Stanford
From Women's Suffrage marches to Black Lives Matter protests, anti-war demonstrations to fossil fuel divestment rallies, Stanford University students have a long history of activism, both on the Stanford campus and beyond. Since Stanford University's inception, students have organized protests, written letters and signed petitions, and held sit-ins and rallies to create a more equitable university community, and a more just society and world.
