Dear CCNY Students,
The leadership of the CCNY Counseling Center, Gender Resources, and Black Studies Program are responding to requests from several students to hold an online, check-in session this Thursday, June 4th, from 1 PM to 2 PM and I'm writing to encourage you to attend.
These are difficult times. I understand that many of you are angry, confused, or feeling new levels of stress, both because of the recent tragedy in Minnesota, the resulting street protests and the violent escalations of those events. All this, of course, is layered atop the underlying realities of a pandemic with which we're all still grappling. This session is designed to give you an opportunity to talk about what you're experiencing, derive support from your friends and colleagues, and hear from the leaders of these three important offices.
I'd like to encourage you to take advantage of this moment, and I'd like to commend the leaders of these three offices for pulling this together.
The flyer for the event can be found here. I hope you'll find time to attend, and that you'll accept my very best wishes for your safety and peace.
