RAs protest racial aggression
Resident assistants at Ithaca College are protesting what they are calling racial profiling and harassmentby Public Safety officers against students of color.
On the evening of Sept. 2, an estimated 30 resident assistants linked arms, formed two lines and silently stood on each side of the entrance to Emerson Suites. Each student held a different white sign emblazoned with a phrase protesting the actions of Public Safety officers during RA training sessions in August and the ongoing treatment of students of color on campus.

“Do #BlackLivesMatter to Terri Stewart?”
