Open Letter: Faculty and staff support students postelection

To our students,

We, the undersigned, want to express our concern and support for Ithaca College students who are feeling especially vulnerable after the presidential election and subsequent hate crimes across the nation. We recognize that injustices such as racism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, anti-immigration, anti-Semitism, sexism, sexual assault and ableism have been a painful reality for members in our community long before this election. By signing this letter, we express our support to those at the margins that were, are, and (sadly) will continue to be impacted by the outcome of this election. Please do not hesitate to email us, call us on the phone, come by our offices, or invite us to join you and others for informal conversation. While we may be unable to provide answers and explanations to all of your questions, we can provide supportive, listening ears to your concerns and ideas. Moreover, we will gladly walk with you to your classes or car, keep you company (e.g, in public spaces such as cafeterias), help you locate community resources, relay your needs to the institution, speak in your dorm or classroom … in other words, support you with what you are needing.

Signatures remain open. If you are a member of faculty or staff and do not have access to the link, please email [email protected].
