Town Hall Meeting

October 22: Town Hall Meeting on Kavanaugh Confirmation

More than 50 students took a stand and participated in a nationwide walkout to voice their concerns and frustration over the Kavanaugh confirmation. In order to continue the conversation and give students a platform to voice their opinions, students have organized a town hall meeting. Dean Harold Krent will open up the town hall, and Professor Felice Batlan will provide an introduction of the current political climate. 

Afterward, Dean Krent will leave, and students will be able to discuss their thoughts, concerns and opinions on what they need to feel supported by the Chicago-Kent community. Food and drinks will be available from 5 to 6 p.m. before the town hall meeting.  

The goal is to give everyone who wants one a forum to discuss the recent Supreme Court confirmation and/or issues of sexual assault and the current political climate. 

There will be a voter registration table as well as a table with resources on how you can get involved and support services for survivors. 

When: Thrusday, October 22
Time: Reception from 5 to 6 p.m.; discussion from 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Auditorium
