SIU Election Protest

A protest took place on campus today to show support for Black Lives Matter, women’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and immigrants’ rights in light of the recent election.

Carbondale Community High School student Cecilia Albert-Black says the event was planned to “help spread love and understanding” in the midst of division.

Sara Beatty and Angie Youroukos led the event, and hope to continue showing support through future peaceful protests.
