Coping in the time of COVID-19 is an uncharted, life-changing task for everyone whether you are on campus or not. In today’s world, COVID is not the only pandemic affecting us. Black, African American, Peoples of Color, and Indigenous People are communicating openly about long standing and systemic social injustice, oppression, violence, and discrimination. Our lives have changed significantly because of this and because of the coronavirus pandemic and its differential impacts on all of us.
