KIM: Speak up for Indiana
I want to urge University President Peter Salovey to publicly oppose Indiana’s RFRA, an act which represents discrimination and ignorance that is unacceptable in the 21st century
KIM: In the face of criticism
Beyond the murk and the controversies and the reactionary sentiments surrounding the tragedy, one particular aspect of the Charlie Hebdo attacks stands out to me: the courage it takes to express one’s views, and the value of such courage.
