Students and alumni at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia are petitioning the prestigious art school to strip Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ name from an academic building.
The petition on Change.org is called “Take A Sexual Predator’s Name Off of SCAD’s Building” and had more than 1,000 signatures by Friday morning.
“I don’t want any other female who has hopes and dreams to have to walk through the doors of that building. They shouldn’t have to be subjugated to that toxic feeling,” said recent graduate Sage Lucero, who started the petition, according to WJCL. .
The three-story brick building, dotted with windows and fronted by a large ivy-covered tree, is home to the Clarence Thomas Center for Historic Preservation, according to the school. It was built in 1908 and was previously an orphanage and convent for the Missionary Sisters of the Franciscan order.
