NASPA has several events focused on racial and social justice, check them out!
Over the past weeks, we have seen headline after headline of unfortunate tragic and traumatizing events across the globe. Many of which have claimed the lives of several individuals including two highly televised and police-involved deaths of Black men, and most recently five Dallas Police Officers. Our hearts go out to the families and communities, both domestically and abroad, who’ve suffered such painful losses. We acknowledge that as a part of a collective community, many of us our hurting.
As a residential college on the campus of Michigan State University, James Madison College understands the ways such events can trigger deep feelings of frustration, grief, and fear. As such, this all the more requires us to reach out to one another to promote mutual respect and self-care.
