PTSD is real. Chronic pain is real. Anxiety is real. Depression is real. Take our minds seriously. Take us seriously. Stop telling us you care and show us you do.

If we support the autonomy of both Israelis and Palestinians, advocating for Palestinian self-determination is essential. It can start here at Michigan. We are eager for Hillel to join us.
BY STUDENT ATHLETE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
We believe that recent coverage of Michigan Athletics has been largely one-sided. Understand that media coverage and decisions made about Michigan Athletics intimately affect our lives. We have been insulted and discredited not only as student-athletes, but as people. Out of respect to our university, we have stayed silent for weeks; now, we feel the need to speak up.

Just like most people in this nation, I am fed up with our elected representatives’ refusal to perform the jobs we sent them to Washington for. So whether you are a Republican, Democrat, Independent or don’t affiliate with a party like myself, all Americans should be happy in an imminent return to governmental normalcy, and an end to that most hated word that has so often characterized our government: gridlock.

Even without Hillel’s support, the Palestinian Solidarity Shabbat will go on. It’s this Friday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in East Quad’s Benzinger Library (Room 1423). We welcome anyone who wants to join in this informal setting, where no views will be censored, restricted or stigmatized.
BY BLOOD BATTLE COMMITTEE
This year, in conjunction with the annual Blood Battle competition, we’re placing a special emphasis on education and advocacy for a change in this longstanding discriminatory policy against all men who have had sexual contact with another man (MSM) that bans them from donating blood for life.

I refuse to passively accept the harmful ways I’m portrayed. I refuse to idly let these racist media typecasts represent me; to propagate a false image of the Chinese-American identity. This destructive narrative needs to change.
