Join the Tigers Helping NJ

A message from Sunny Sandhu '20:

We're excited to share the #TigersHelpingNJ campaign that was independently organized by Princeton athletes, current and alums, in support of Connect for COVID-19, a nonprofit organization raising money to donate devices to quarantined hospital patients who have no way of staying connected to their family. This group of Princeton students and alums started a fundraising campaign challenging members of the Princeton athlete family to support this cause with a focus on donating as many devices as possible to the state of the New Jersey. They enlisted the support of legendary athlete alumni like Jason Garrett, Craig Robinson, Dean Cain, and many more to raise almost $14,000 in donations in one week! You can read about them in our very own Daily Princetonian point to that impact.

In partnership with the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund, they will be donating these funds for the purchase of tablets for NJ hospitals in need. Every $1,000 raised means that another 200 families will be connected. There are few ways you can support:

 

  1. Donate directly to the GoFundMe:  https://www.gofundme.com/f/tigershelpingnjDonations above $1K are tax deductible. 
  2. Involve your organization to consider matching their fundraised amount of $14,000 to purchase tablets for NJ hospitals with Covid-19 patients. 
  3. Engage your organization to donate excess devices to this cause.  

 

If you have social media, please share with others the information about this cause here on their website: https://www.dhcproject.org/tigershelpingnj

And please continue the movement by challenging your classmates to support this cause. You can make a video and post on social media like many alumni have done, or simply make a call and connect us with others in your Tiger family so that we can connect as many patients to their families as possible.

Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study

Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power and Assault on Campus

2020 Virtual Reunions

Friday May 29, 2020, 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET

Register in advance for this webinar: https://columbiacuimc.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_3jVcu4vLQWqNZCj7KUBJOQ

 After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting..

Author/Interviewer: Jennifer S. Hirsch, PhD, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University; Elizabeth Mitchell Armstrong *93, PhD, MPA, Associate Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, Princeton University;  Mary Devellis ’21 (Question Moderator)

 At this moment of global pandemic, public health is more visible than ever. But public health’s core mission – to build communities in which everyone can thrive – extends beyond infectious diseases. Join us to hear Jennifer S. Hirsch, ’88 and Elizabeth M. Armstrong *93, discussing Hirsch’s groundbreaking new book, which applies a public health optic to campus sexual assault: Sexual Citizens: A Landmark Study of Sex, Power and Assault on Campus (coauthored with Shamus Khan, published by WW Norton and featured recently in PAW).

Sexual Citizens is transforming how people understand and address the most misunderstood problem on college campuses: widespread sexual assault. Drawing on their extended research on the Columbia and Barnard campuses, Hirsch and Khan present intimate portraits of life and sex among students in a way that pulls back the curtain on what it is like to be in college today. They present an entirely new way to understand sexual assault, focusing on its social roots. Their insights transcending current debates about consent, predators in a “hunting ground,” or the dangers of hooking up. Sexual Citizens points to what everyone – parents, K-12 schools, faith-based organizations, elected officials, and institutions of higher education – can do to reduce the risk of sexual assault, in college and more generally. Participants should be advised that Hirsch and Armstrong’s discussion of Sexual Citizens will include descriptions of actual sexual assaults, as students recounted them.
