Wednesday afternoon a number of Brooklyn College faculty and staff members who call themselves, Brooklyn College Against Trump, stood outside in unison protesting the Trump agenda among several other national issues. The group held signs illustrating their stance on the nation’s current state in regards to press freedom, women’s equality, refugee ban list, Governor Cuomo’s budget proposal, and health care rights.
When discussing the group’s genesis, one of the group’s leaders made its message clear.
“A group of faculty and professional staff at Brooklyn College came together to formulate some basis on which to resist the Trump-Pence agenda,” said English professor, Jame Davis.
Davis stated that weekly meetings are held Thursdays from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm at room 2127 in Ingersol Hall. The meetings are open to the entire Brooklyn College community.
