Sonoma State Cross Dispute Over According To Student’s Attorney

The lawyer representing the Sonoma State student who was asked to remove her cross necklace states that his client’s complaint has been resolved.

There has been much media attention focused on Sonoma State University and Audrey Jarvis.

The ordeal began on June 27 when Jarvis was asked by a supervisor at a student orientation event to remove or hide her cross necklace because it might offend the students at the orientation.

According to the Press Democrat, Hiram Sasser, the lawyer representing Jarvis, stated that the university took the matter seriously and that necessary action was taken.

The supervisor who asked Jarvis to remove her necklace has been identified as Erik Dickson, executive director of the Associated Students.

Officials have organized an opportunity for Dickson and Jarvis to meet so that Dickson may apologize in person.

To think this made national headlines, coming right here in our 'own little neighborhood!' This beautiful student handled it with such class and grace. She's lovely! I like her cross a lot. I believe in freedom of expression for all faiths and beliefs. I was amazed they had asked her to do this, especially here in California where we are notoriously noted for tolerance and acceptance. Maybe the cross can be patented as the 'audrey cross' to represent freedom of religion if it isn't patented already. I remember Madonna in the 80s covered in crosses on stage when she was beginning her career but I guess rock and pop stars get away with anything over the humble private people who are just trying to get an education to build their lives. : )

I still maintain that the cross looks cute on her.

Here in California, we are notoriously noted for tolerance and acceptance. Going only one way.
