Week emphasizes theme of accountability for campus issues

first_imgStudent government and the Gender Relations Center (GRC) are partnering to host the “Cost of Silence” week. Formerly known as “Race Relations Week,” sophomore Kaleem Minor, student government director of diversity and inclusion, said the new title was meant to encompass more issues on campus.“We feel like something bigger on this campus is what it means to be silent for your friend, what it means to not be an ally,” Minor said. “What’s the cost [of] that? And not just allyship, but being accountable, being involved with the issue. Because this issue is not something that one person, one group, one organization can fix. It’s something that everybody has to chip in and help [solve].”The week includes events such as apparel handouts, T-shirt distributions, a screening of the film “Sisters of Selma: Bearing Witness for Change,” a pledge signing and a speaker series.“We’re trying to encourage people to know their role, understand their role and figure out their role,” Minor said. “While our University’s great, there’s a lot of things that aren’t great for … students that aren’t a majority in any sense — whether it be race, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status and gender identity.”Minor said his department — diversity and inclusion — put a lot of thought into the week’s events to make sure they were as successful as possible. He said they focused on events that would engage students and incite discussion, not just through the panels, but from events as simple as T-shirt distributions. The T-shirts advertise statistics on women’s rights, race and sexual identity, among others.The event Minor said he is most excited about is the speaker series.“The goal of this event and the reason I’m so excited about it is because you have these people who are experts in this field and understand what’s going on, talking to students and challenging students to get involved,” he said.The goal of the week, Minor said, is to get students thinking about how to act on the issues they care about the most.“A lot of students, from what I’ve heard, they want to change campus but they don’t know how,” he said. “We just talk about what they care about and why they care about it and encourage them to get involved … in any way because everybody has a role. “The general arching theme is accountability. How can you get involved? How can you change campus?”Minor said he remembers last year, his freshman year, when campus was especially hostile during election season.“I think now there’s an aura of being cordial, but not necessarily talking or having conversations,” he said. “I think there’s a deep and thorough need for that under the right circumstances, which is something we all have to come together and decide how to do.”In terms of racial relations and inclusion on campus, Minor said, there is definitely room for improvement. He said this week empowers students to bring up the issues they most care about. He said in conjunction with the GRC, student government hosts this week to serve as a platform for students to voice their opinions on how to make this University a more welcoming place for all, without exceptions.“We have some really powerful events [this week] that can really provoke some thought and discussion,” he said. “If we can get 20-25 people … to say, ‘Wow, I have an issue that I really care about and I want to get involved in fixing this’ … that’s a win to me.”Tags: Accountability, Cost of Silence, Diversity, Diversity and Inclusion, inclusion, Race relationslast_img read more

first_img In the wake of a 4-2 Super Cup defeat to Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, it had been speculated that Bayern were in the market for a new defender, with Brazilian Luiz reportedly topping the list. However, speaking at the presentation of the Audi Cup pre-season tournament in Munich, Guardiola rejected the speculation. “He’s not coming to Munich,” he said. “We’ve got four or five central defenders. “There is no truth to the speculation.” With Javi Martinez expected to feature more at the heart of the Bayern defence following the arrival of fellow Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona, Guardiola has enough cover at the back. Jerome Boateng and Daniel van Buyten both started against Dortmund, but Dante and Martinez are tipped to form the preferred defensive partnership in the continued absence of Holger Badstuber, who could miss the entire season with a knee injury. Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says there is no truth to rumours linking his club with a bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

We have no time to be sad for more than 24 hours, that’s football. It’s not the end of the world.”The visitors were deserving winners as they controlled the game throughout, but had to wait for Ben Yedder’s introduction as a substitute 18 minutes from time to add a clinical finish by taking his Champions League tally for the season to eight goals in seven appearances.Ben Yedder put Sevilla in front two minutes later when he blasted into the bottom corner before heading in a second shortly after. “In the first half we played a good game apart from the last 30 metres,” said Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella.“In the second half we were more clinical with Ben Yedder, he made the difference today.”Mourinho sprang a surprise before kick-off by recalling Marouane Fellaini at the expense of Pogba, who had also been dropped for the first game.Sevilla dominated the vast majority of the first leg only to be denied by some stunning saves from David de Gea.However, it was wayward finishing rather than the Spanish number one that prevented the visitors making the most of their ascendency for most of the match.Indeed, of Sevilla’s 10 efforts on goal in the first period only one weak Muriel effort forced De Gea into making a save.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Romelu Lukaku reduced United’s arrears, but it was too little, too late with Mourinho’s decision to once again drop Paul Pogba certain to be scrutinised.center_img Manchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insisted European disappointment is nothing new for the English giants after losing 2-1 to Sevilla at Old Trafford to crash out of the Champions League by the same scoreline on aggregate.Wissam Ben Yedder struck twice in four second-half minutes on Tuesday to send Sevilla into the quarter-finals for the first time in 60 years as United suffered a first European home defeat since Alex Ferguson’s Champions League farewell in 2013.Mourinho was on the winning side that night as Real Madrid manager and also sent United out of the last 16 when Porto boss in 2004.last_img read more

Kamil has a monumental love of the outdoors. He loves hiking, biking, fishing, and any sort of adventure. His dreams to become a police officer and have a beautiful life are postponed for now.” The text of the appeal closes with hope in mind. “We are asking for any sort of gesture to help him and his family conquer this situation, and participation from you in his long journey. Hopefully we can celebrate one day his regain of what he has lost.”Catherine Butkiewicz, whose family is listed as one of the organizers of the appeal, emailed that Sudol’s family lives in Bedford, N.Y. A GoFundMe campaign began Monday for the benefit of 20-year-old Kamil Sudol, who dove off Little Bridge in Oak Bluffs on August 3 and suffered injuries that have paralyzed him from the chest down. Sudol reportedly dove into the shallow waters beneath the bridge headfirst and, according to a police report, struck his head.  “Kamil was in a horrifying accident on August 3rd, 2020, leaving his body paralyzed from the chest down as a result of jumping into water he didn’t know was shallow while vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard,” the fundraising page states. “Kamil was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he is in critical condition with fractures to his vertebrae; facing severe injury to his spinal cord, leaving his 20-year-old body without any sensation and mobility immediately from his chest down, still remaining with some limited sensation in his arms.” The bridge is posted with signs warning against jumping or diving from the bridge. The campaign, which is roughly 24 hours old and was begun by Taylor Moreau, seeks to raise $750,000. By 8 am August 12 it had generated 924 donors and just over $93,000 in funds. center_img “Kamil will be facing many obstacles and treatments on his way to his desire of recovery,” the page states. “In preparation for the immense emotional and financial toll this will take on his family, we are looking to do everything possible to aid Kamil along his journey.”It further states, “If you cannot donate, please pray and please share this in support of Kamil. He is a huge part of our lives, and we are hoping to face this with strength, support, and in faith.”Kamil is described as someone of “great courage” and “amazing character” and as having “selflessness and a wholehearted soul.” last_img read more
