University of Chicago students protest for the safety of sexual assault victims

A group of students, community members and alumni all gathered at the University of Chicago Wednesday night to protest a group of hackers that threatened the safety of several sexual assault victims. More than 100 protesters marched in retaliation of the group called UChicago Electronic Army -- which revealed the identity of one sexual assault survivor and threatened to rape members from the Class of 2018. Veronica Portillo Heap, Senior at the University of Chicago and President of GALS: Gender Activism Learning Service, joins us to talk about the protest and how students on campus plan to fight back.
