Below please find my email correspondence with Yale Graduate School Dean Lynn Cooley at the end of May, 2018, when I am begging her to tell the truth about the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale, and I am begging her to save my life and career as a lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney and activist, and she tells me no. Here are the emails:

Dear Dean Cooley,

I was hoping to touch base with you regarding whatever investigation has occurred with respect to the events of this semester, particularly with respect to February 24thand May 8th.  I hope very much that the evidence has led whichever investigators to determine that I did absolutely nothing wrong, that I acted as any reasonable person would have under the circumstances and as I had been instructed, repeatedly, by Yale and by Yale’s Police Department, and that I absolutely did not engage in any behavior that was in any way motivated by racial bias or animus of any kind.  

I am also hoping that Yale will make a public statement to this effect.  My life has been destroyed.  My human and civil rights career has been destroyed.  My social justice career has been destroyed.  My career in academia has been destroyed.  My legal advocacy career has been destroyed.  I have to try and save and rebuild my life now. I told Yale repeatedly that I was being terrorized in my own home in on campus housing.  I begged Yale to close that common room.  I made it very clear, repeatedly, that that common room was only being used to harass, threaten, and attack me for months.  Yale did nothing.  I need Yale to act now and to make a public statement clearing me of wrongdoing, so that I can try and save my life.  All I have is my good name and my good reputation, and both have been taken from me.  

None of this means that I do not support, wholeheartedly, institutional reforms at Yale, and all institutions, which make students and all persons of color feel welcome and included. I strongly support such institutional reforms.  I support the black social justice movement 100%.  I support the creation of a Title VI office on campus.  I always have.  And, nothing has changed.  I am the same proud social justice warrior that I ever was.  

I am hoping to hear good news from you.  I could use some.  Thank you so much for your time and attention.  

All best,

Sarah Braasch

Dear Ms. Braasch,

This is to let you know I have not carried out an investigation of the events in HGS in any formal sense. I have however been given information from the Yale Police Department regarding May 8th. Based on this, I believe we need to determine whether your actions failed to meet the Graduate School’s expectations for personal conduct. You will be receiving detailed information soon from Associate Dean Richard Sleight about the disciplinary procedure we have in place to make this determination, including the information we have received from the police. If you have any questions as the process unfolds, Dean Sleight will be available to answer them. The procedures also provide that a former member of the Committee on Regulations and Discipline shall be available to you for consultation. Dean Sleight will provide you with a list of former members and informed people who you may request to advise you. Professor Szabo or another member of the Philosophy Department may also be willing to advise you during the process.

I understand this is a very stressful time for you. I hope that moving through the disciplinary procedure will provide a way forward based on thoughtful consideration of the situation.

Sincerely,

Dean Cooley
