What’s on your mind?

Many students of color on this campus are hurt and scared as a result of the Election results last night. Last night, hundreds of students came out to Low Plaza in solidarity and to cope with what was for them a frightening reality. In a tip we received from anonymous source, the Provost has granted Professors the ability to move exams this week at their discretion. If you’re feeling stressed or in need of someone to talk to, please reach out to your community or some of the sources below:

1. CPS # : 212-854-2878, know that you can request to see someone who shares aspects of your identity (PoC, woman, queer folk)

2. Nightline #: 212-857-7777 is staffed by trained students and available from 10PM to 3AM every day of the week.

3. Mujeres, Proud Colors, Sister Circle, and Men of Color Alliance will be hosting a space in the IRC tonight from 7-9pm. (The IRC is not wheelchair accessible.)

4. University Life will be hosting a space in the Law School Case Lounge in Jerome Greene Hall 7th floor from 5-7pm.

5. Broadway Presbyterian Church (on corner of 114th and Broadway) is hosting a sanctuary all day for those that need some quiet space, and a prayer from 12:10-12:30 pm.

6. Chicanx Caucus will have their usual space open tonight in replacement of their General Body meeting. It will be a reflection/healing space for anyone that needs it. The event is from 9-10PM tonight in Hamilton 516.

If you are interested in writing about your thoughts on this situation or talking with someone, The Lion team is available via email or Facebook Messenger. We can help with writing op-eds, reviewing poetry, helping with photo essays, comments, or any form you want to express yourself through.

Stay safe and stay united, Columbia.
