A Call for More Student Video Letters!  

Submit a 15-30 second video statement to Harvard stating why it is important to YOU that the University surrender images of Renty and Delia to their family.

These are Harvard students who are asking that the images be surrendered to the certified descendants of Renty and Delia. We'll add your video to this loop.

We each identify with this case in unique ways. The Coalition would like to highlight how this case impacts each of us, but we need your help. Just a few seconds can make a big difference.
