The Counseling and Human Services Department offers our support, encouragement, and respect for the student-led Black Lives Matter events. While we wish to continuously seek social justice for persons of all identities in accord with our department values, we believe it is important to speak as allies with our Black and Multi-racial community in response to the recent incident on campus. We know what while this was an overt, especially horrific incident, there is a continuing struggle for equality and respect. The ETSU Community Dialogue that took place Wednesday, 9/28 was a powerful display of unity and open conversation. See this link for the video of the ETSU Community Dialogue.Several of our Counseling Program students spoke throughout. The times they spoke are a follows: 30:14 - Emily Hand; 33:40 - Jared Davis; 36:54 - Lauren Penley; 1:09:00 - Jasmine Quailey; 1:48:54 - Kelli Hess; and 1:54:13 - Jared Davis.
