After taking a meeting off for some theatre duties, it sure feels great to be back in Emory's Senate meetings!
This week, the Senate expressed it's disappointment in the decisions to lay off several members of the Emory and Henry faculty and staff, began efforts for a day to celebrate diverse opinions on campus, as well as started a committee to begin a student Bill of Rights.
It's so refreshing to see students, like myself, enacting change, or at least trying to enact change on campus.
Students at Emory and Henry DO have the power to help create change, one vote at a time. Speak to your Senator or another member of the SGA to be sure your voice is heard.
This doesn't just apply to student government though. It's so easy to contact your elected officials, and I encourage you to do so.
No matter your political affiliation, it's important for these officials to know the wills of their constituents. Voice what you believe is important, and you may see that change.
See you soon,
