Seven board members from the Harvard Gender and Sexuality Caucus tendered their resignations earlier this month following a spat over the board’s “commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
According to The Crimson , the board’s differences reached a “fever pitch” after several “confrontational” emails were exchanged, with one member demanding the resignation of the Caucus president.
The imbroglio began back in June when board member Julius E.Y. Towers requested a diversity statement be added to the HGSC’s mission statement and bylaws. According to the report, Towers and fellow board member Ricky Ramón felt the rest of the board “insufficiently addressed [the] proposal.”
Towers had emailed that he believed several white board members “appeared less willing to participate in ‘meaningful’ conversations about diversity.” Board member Cody Dean took issue with that, noting the HGSC board had expanded — and became more diverse — in elections this past May, which included the additions of both Towers and Ramón.
Eventually HGSC Board President Meredith Cartwright emailed Towers telling him to “(respectfully) ‘STFU.’” She later apologized, but that too was insufficient for Towers. Soon after, he introduced a motion to remove not only Cartwright from her position(s), but Dean as well.

As tempers continued to flare in email threads, the resignations came : “HGSC needs to genuinely tackle conversations about race, belonging[,] equity, inclusion and diversity in-house,” [Daniel] Stephens wrote in his resignation email. “Not doing so has cost too much.” The same day, Towers and board member Khoa T. Pham both resigned. In a joint resignation email, Towers and Pham alleged that the board suffered from a “lack of cultural humility, awareness and respect of diversity and inclusion.” On July 5, board member Jesus M. “Jesse” Leon also resigned, citing “the personal attacks and lack of inclusion of [Black, Indigenous, and other people of color] members” in an email to the board. … Dean resigned via email on July 3, explaining that he was unwilling to remain on a board where “a basic modicum of respect among colleagues cannot be honored.” … After […] seven resignations, five […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
