Unrelated, I got an email to donate to the efforts to get Greeks back at Harvard. Anyone else who signed the petition get this email too?
I did.

Well, I feel left out! I signed, but didn't get the email. I even checked my spam filter.

New update on Harvard Greeks: https://www.standuptoharvard.org/lawsuit-update/

It would be great if Greek students at Harvard would continue to wear their letters on campus every day in protest.

Per a source who used to work at Alpha Phi IHQ (and, no, I won’t divulge): the Alpha Phi chapter at Harvard is back and has about 20 members. The chapter is probably not recognized by the school but that should change after the lawsuit.

Here's what I don't get: it seems like every very prominent Harvard grad was in one of those single-sex eating clubs. Wouldn't Harvard be losing a boatload of support with this recent move?

Iím guessing that they have been unhappy with Harvardís direction for a long time and have been sending any $$ directly to their clubs for a long time. Thatís why they could afford to stay open. The collegiate members know they have alumni support without going thru Harvard channels.

Yesterday, the judge in the case rejected Harvard's motion to dismiss.

Sadly, the groups impacted by Harvard's policy the most have been dismissed from the federal case. KKG and Theta were removed as plaintiffs.

It seems like the only reason they were dismissed as plaintiffs is because they're not active and not subject to Harvard's policies.

But the lawsuit hasn't been dismissed completely, which is a good sign.

I wholeheartedly disagree! The one and ONLY reason that Theta and Kappa are no longer active chapters is a direct result of the threats made by Harvard against the girls in the sorority chapters.

Accurate. However, looking at the big picture, this case will set a precedent, and the fact that it wasn't dismissed entirely is a positive step forward.

I think what she was trying to say is how can a chapter be a plaintiff if the chapter is no longer an active entity. Same as a deceased person canít be a plaintiff. We know why the chapters were forced to close.
