From Campus Reform regarding a week-long anti-Trump protest at California-Santa Cruz:

In a letter recently obtained by Campus Reform, the provost of Oakes College (one of ten academic colleges at UCSC) lamented the election of “a person who has been overtly and openly racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, ableist, cis-sexist, xenophobic, and much more while on the campaign trail.”

“We are deeply troubled and stand more firm in our resolve regarding the work that we all hold essential at Oakes. We will continue to fight for equity and justice,” Provost Regina Day Langhout continued, encouraging her students to “love each other boldly” and “be transparent with our despair, and cry openly alongside one another.”
