In addition, check out the live virtual spaces being offered through the RISE Center and other campus partners to process the impact of the elections and activate our resilience during this time. You can find additional resources for having tough conversations on our Harmony at Home page. The RISE Center is also offering ongoing Healing Spaces in support of our Black Bruin community for restoration and connection during these challenging times.
