  1. Dear Lena,
    I’ve been following your story and I am quite moved by it. It is incredible to see how acquaintance rape can be brushed off and misconstrued in that way. I am very for sorry for all that you have been through.
    I am a student at Webster University Geneva, Switzerland. And we are starting to build a sexual harrassment policy office, because it doesn’t exist. Me and a few other students are very keen to raise awareness about issues related to consent, date rape and acceptable sexual behavior on campus. If you are interested in discussing this, please let me know.
    I admire your courage to stand up and speak up about it. It gives me hope.

    Good luck on your journey.

    1. Mischa, thank you so much for your comment, and my apologies for the delayed reply. Much appreciation for your support and solidarity. So glad to hear you and other students are working at your school to make your campus safe for everybody. At this time my health is not well and I’m not able to involve myself in directly organizing for other campuses, much as I would like to. Know you have my support and I am there with you in spirit.
      All the best,
      Lena

    1. Thank you Jasmine. From reading some of your posts you too are most certainly speaking out and using your voice. Thank you for your support. Much solidarity to you!

  2. Lena,

    My sister Frania Romulus wrote a play that was produced at her university in Worcester (Clark University) its success granted her a residency to produce the play at AS220 in Providence, RI.

    LA NEGRITA CHRONICLES is a comedic satire that delves into the intersection of racism and sexism on college campuses. Romulus brings mainstream stereotypes of all sorts to life to tell their hilarious and heartbreaking stories. Traditional theatre norms are broken and political incorrectness is embraced, revealing the unpleasant underbelly of our “post-racial” society. Through the story of one young woman’s journey, a startlingly accurate reflection of modern American culture emerges.

    Following opening night’s performance on April 16th, a panel of local activists and academics will lead a discussion on the play’s relevance to current events.

    We would be honored to have you as a speaker on the 16th and wanted to reach out to you.

    SpeakUP Theatre Company Presents: La Negrita Chronicles

    Frania Romulus’ play, LA NEGRITA CHRONICLES, will be showing in As220’s Black Box Theatre at 115 Empire Street April 16-18 and April 23-25 at 7:30 pm.

    SpeakUp is a brand new theatre company founded by local New England artists. Our aim to is highlight traditionally unheard voices & stories. We believe that by changing the face of theatre in Rhode Island, by giving people of color, women, the disabled, immigrants, transfolk, or any marginalized person the platform to tell their story, we can be a part of the international movement towards inclusion and justice for all.

    “Women of color are expected to suffer in silence, but I demand that my voice be heard” – Frania Romulus, playwright
