Women’s Resources Center

April 15, 2016

Dear Campus Community members,

This morning, staff at the Women’s Resources Center were greeted with chalking outside our entrance, similar to the offensive chalkings which have been seen on the Quad and in front of other campus buildings, including Latina/Latino Studies, in the past two weeks.

Freedom of speech carries a responsibility to be thoughtful and sensitive. We should all have the intelligence and compassion to recognize the power of words and expressions that may threaten others or trigger an emotional response based on the personal experiences we or someone we care about have endured.

We’re better than this! Let’s work towards a community that recognizes the value of difference and unites around the ideals of consideration and empathy towards others.

Respectfully,

Patricia Morey, Assistant Dean and Director of Women's Resources Center
