As recent events in Charleston and across the country have unfolded, we recognize and mourn not only these events, but the countless unpublicized racist acts that affect people in our nation.  At CAPS, we are aware of the visible and invisible processes that contribute to the experiences of racial and ethnic minorities including, but not limited to racism, hate crimes, violence, and discrimination.  As a Center, we want to engage in and support the continued dialogue about how to facilitate change on an individual and system level. In these times, we encourage reaching out to friends and family for support, to dialogue and to continue to engage in the struggle towards social justice wherever and whenever you can. 

You may notice that you and others around you are experiencing a range of reactions.  These reactions can look and feel many different ways.  They may be emotional or physical in nature, and they may or may not be similar to the people around you.  Reactions across this community include sadness, outrage, a sense of helplessness, disbelief and many other experiences.

We encourage you to seek safe people and spaces to identify and process your reactions.  At CAPS, we are committed to creating a safe and affirming environment for all individuals, and are committed to supporting all students in need.  CAPS would also like to offer support to those who have been affected by these events and are coping with race-related stress.  Walk-in services are available at CAPS Monday-Friday, from 9-12 and from 1-4.
