Good morning,

Welcome to the June 29 edition of the Monthly Roundup. We hope that you are taking advantage of the beautiful summer weather. Despite the break from school, the news hasn’t stopped pouring in. So, we’ve got you covered on the latest updates around campus and the nation. 

This past month, the Supreme Court recently overturned the landmark case Roe v. Wade, a Daily investigation found many allegations of microaggressions against an Art & Design professor and the urgent call for gun reform is necessary given the past traumatic two decades of repeated school shootings nationwide.

Roe v. Wade overturned, Supreme Court overrules constitutional right to abortion

Not long after Politico released a leaked draft opinion against abortion last month, the Supreme Court ruled against the constitutional right to abortion on Friday. The court ruled in favor of a Mississippi law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. This ruling overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade and 1992 Planned Parenthood v. Casey cases – both nationally guaranteeing abortion rights. This decision is likely to have massive implications on abortion accessibility throughout the country. Read more about the ruling in addition to potential future debates about other rights that are protected under the 14th amendment.

Daily investigation finds allegations of microaggressions against comics professor

In a Focal Point investigation, The Michigan Daily found numerous accusations of microaggressions from students against Phoebe Gloeckner, Art & Design professor and graphic design novelist. A month into Gloeckner’s fall 2020 course ArtDes 366: Graphic Narratives, students reported to school administrators racial- and gender-based microaggressions in addition to Gloeckner’s use of racially insensitive caricatures in her curriculum that lacked educational content. Read on about the concerns voiced by students that School of Art & Design administrators and the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) were repeatedly made aware of over the past two years.

The children who grew up in a generation of school shootings have grown up. And we demand gun reform

From Sandy Hook to Uvalde and the many in between, school shootings have unfortunately dominated Michigan in Color columnist Maya Kogulan and her generation’s K-12 and collegiate education. A decade has gone by since Sandy Hook occurred, but Kogulan describes how politicians have failed to deliver adequate gun reform measures. Kogulan describes how gun violence is a public health epidemic that disproportionately affects young people and people of Color, and it seems to solely be an American problem. Read more about the gun reform measures Kogulan urges readers to take in order to stop gun violence nationwide.
