Christopher Sausa remembers how awkward it felt being a seventh-grader. He recalls feeling “stuck in the middle – not a kid, but not a grown-up yet,” and he wished he had someone to talk to. But at the time, his father felt too far removed and his younger brother wouldn’t be any help.

Words matter.

Names matter.

In the wake of the shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, remember that the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center is here year-round for members of the University community who are grieving or need support in coping with news of violence aimed at members of their faith or any other community that is important to their identity. We stand, as always, with all of our students, alums and colleagues working to create a respectful culture on Grounds and across the world.

It is a time of hyper-partisan politics and corresponding heightened tension around our everyday interactions, especially online. At the Women’s Center, we hear frequently from people looking for support as they seek to engage with the news in ways that are mindful of their personal resources.

1.What brought you to the Women's Center?
I came to the Women's Center because I was looking for a way to get more involved in violence prevention work. I did a lot with it in high school, so after not really knowing where to start my first year, I decided I would apply to the internship to have some more direction my second year.
