NORMAN, Okla. - Students and adults stood silently in solidarity at the Norman Board of Education meeting Monday evening.
"I just wanted to come out and support people who are trying to make a change," said Charles Redcorn.
They held a candlelight vigil after multiple teenage girls came forward to say they'd been raped by a fellow student.
The student has since been suspended.
The group knows the whole world is watching.
"Other communities are following the lead so I hope they step up and do the right thing, because if that's what's out there I feel that we could be the example," said Jenny Ellis.
Those outside the meeting have a list of demands for the school, including a request for immediate implementation of education to prevent sexual assault, sexual harassment and bullying.
School officials say the support the actions this group is taking.
"Whenever a student body wants to stand up in a unified way and say we have zero tolerance for sexual assault and bullying, that can only be seen as a great thing," said Shelly Hickman.
The teen accused has not been arrested.
