Yell like Hell

Hello Residents of 6 West! I hope you are all having a great homecoming week.  Last night some of us went to Yell like Hell to support the men’s soccer team. They won 2 – 1 in first OT.  There are still 2 more events to help out with, House Decs and Float.  If you are interested in helping with either please let Dakota or I know.

Stop the Hate on Tuesday

Hello Residents of 6 West.  This past Tuesday there was a Stop the Hate session.  This session was a deeper dive into hate crimes.  Did you know that in four states there are no hate crime laws?  You might be thinking, what is a hate crime?  A hate crime is a crime the has been committed that was motivated by hate.  For example if someone keyed a swastika into a car that is a hate crime because there is a crime being committed  (Vandalism).  But what happens if someone just puts pieces of paper with swastikas on it under windshield wipers?  That would be a bias incident.  A hate crime is always a bias incident, but a bias incident is not always a hate crime.

I hope that you will all be free to go to the next Stop the Hate with me!
