WE CAN'T AFFORD TO WAIT.
In the wake of COVID-19, we call on Yale to fulfill its broken promises of full financial aid
and mental healthcare. Now more than ever, we can’t afford to wait.

Hire more mental health counselors and therapists who are people of color.

OUR 2020 REPORT
In our report, we outline how Yale’s broken promises of full financial aid and adequate mental healthcare divide our campus along lines of race and class in light of COVID-19’s unequal toll on low-income students and students of color. Yale must rise to the urgency of the moment or else leave low-income students of color to face the consequences of inequalities it helped create.

We are listening to each other, and the message is clear: Yale’s broken promises divide our campus along lines of race and class. As COVID-19 takes its disproportionate toll on low-income students of color, this inequality is only getting worse. Now more than ever, we can’t afford to wait.
