Allbritton Center Maintains Post-Election Calendar of Events

The Allbritton Center, Wesleyan’s hub of civic engagement, is maintaining a calendar of campus and community events related to the recent presidential election and its aftermath.

“In the wake of the historic 2016 presidential election, we believe that civic engagement — in its many forms — is more important than ever,” said Civic Engagement Fellow Rebecca Jacobsen ’16.

The event listing is housed on the Allbritton Center’s Engage blog. Inclusion of an event does not equal endorsement. To submit an event, email engage@wesleyan.edu.

“We are committed to transparency, open discourse, and the safety and well-being of all our community members,” Jacobsen said.

Upcoming events include: Jummah on the Green (a prayer service and solidarity event) on Nov. 18 on Andrus Field; A Leftist Response to Trump Teach-In on Nov. 20 in Woodhead Lounge; United Against Hate – March of Resilience on Nov. 21 in Hartford; and an open town hall about campus organizing on Nov. 21 in Daniel Family Commons.
