Assume there is trauma in your presence

Informed by the wealth of emerging research about the frequencies of racism-inflicted trauma, and sexual assault-inflicted trauma for all gender identities (Retrieved from http://mcsilver.nyu.edu/sites/default/files/reports/Trauma-of-Racism-Report.pdf on December 8, 2018), we don’t know who among our students has experienced trauma.
