Monday, September 14, 9am: We Believe video

Please click play on the video above. The show will play at 9am. You can watch it now or later at your convenience.

Trigger warning: this program contains references to physical and sexual violence, suicide, and verbal abuse. References occur from 49:00-53:00. Students and faculty in need of resources may contact our Women’s Resource Centers or Counseling services.  Find helpful resources on the college Title IX page.

We completed recording the We Believe video in August. It references some of the recent challenges facing our community, however we did not anticipate the current wildfire crisis. Omission of that subject in the video is a function of timing, not indifference to our current suffering.
