Wellness is important, both physically and mentally. We thought that many people don’t feel comfortable talking about political affiliations, and wanted to bring a safe space to do so at EMU. That’s why our chapter decided to host a table at the Winter Wellness Fair! That is also exactly the case that we found. There were the obvious few who were confident in their left or right leaning political preferences, but there were others that felt they’d be judged for being in the middle ground between the left and right, or who just didn’t feel confident saying they were liberal.
Not only do we feel that we helped inspire positive dialogue and have intellectual conversations, but we had a therapy dog named Lavender helping us too! Our Vice President Katie and Free Speech Director Dan had a wonderful time with her. Starting the year off right, and looking forward to future events.
