Looking to get organized? To help make this easier,  Wesleying has compiled another roundup of events in NYC and Connecticut between now and the end of the year with help from other awesome calendars on the ENGAGE blog and Women’s March CT’s Twitter. Also many thanks to my woke Facebook friends who I cyber-stalked to find some of these events. Enjoy!

We want to keep this list up to date, so if you hear about any new event or know about one we missed send us the info by e-mail at  staff[at]wesleying[dot]org or through Twitter/Facebook.

Some great folks over at the Allbritton Center have compiled a calendar of post-election events both at Wes and in the greater Hartford-New Haven area. We’ve cross-posted the calendar here, but definitely keep checking the calendar on the ENGAGE blog, because they’re likely to more frequently update the calendar.

If you know of any events that are not on this calendar and you want them to be, email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org with the event info, mention Wesleying on Twitter or Facebook, or message Wesleying on Facebook. Here is the calendar:

Students Reflect on 2016 Election

campaign-2016

With yesterday’s conclusion of the seemingly endless 2016 election, some Wesleyan students reflected on their experience deciding who to vote for. This article contains interview excerpts from several students who were interviewed separately before the election results were known. These students included Michelle Fisher’19, a Co-Chair for Wesleyan Democratic Socialists, Simon Korn’17 and Aimee Wilkerson’17, Co-Chairs of Wesleyan Democrats, Mathias Valenta ’20, Treasurer of Wesleyan Republicans, as well as Posse Veteran Scholar Brian Barkman’19. Of the five students interviewed three of them (Fisher, Korn, and Wilkerson) were planning to vote for Clinton, meanwhile Valenta, though not a U.S. citizen, supported Trump. Barkman was undecided at the time of the interview but was adamant that he would not cast his vote for Trump.
