Safe Space at Womanist House

From Laiya Ackman ’15:44_brainard

As people wake up and open their email from Public Safety alerting them to the attempted sexual assault that took place last night, I would like to reach out to the campus community and invite anyone who feels affected or upset to Womanist House this afternoon. We’ll have tea and snacks and will strive to be a space space for anyone who needs it. Please feel free to drop by at 44 Brainerd Ave (perpendicular to Lawn, parallel to Pine and Home) anytime from 3-5pm today.

We would like to make sure that everyone on this campus can find a safe space and a support group as we reflect on this traumatic event. Our thoughts and support goes out to the survivor.

If you would like to contact me directly, my email is lackman[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.
