Wed 23 Nov 2016
To the Williams community,
By now, many of us have learned the dreadful news that Sophia Wilansky, class of 2016, was severely injured while demonstrating as a water protector on Sunday night in connection to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests in North Dakota. Sophia is now undergoing a battery of surgeries on her left arm.
We invite you to join us tonight at 7:30pm as we gather in reflection and prayer for Sophia, her family, friends, and all those affected. As we focus our thoughts and prayers on her recovery and healing, our space this evening aims to link up with the wider circle of vigils being convened elsewhere nationally for Sophia during this period of intensive surgeries.
We will assemble at the Matt Cole Reading Room, located on the first floor of the Class of 1966 Environmental Center (home to the Zilkha Center and CES).
In peace and prayer,
Sharif A. Rosen
Muslim Chaplain /
Asst. Dir. for Community Engagement, Center for Learning in Action (CLiA)
