Ask Me About…
By Danielle Zulkosky
Students at Hofstra University recently started a statue protest of their own. The movement began when activists demanded the statue of Thomas Jefferson, located in front of the Sondra and David S. Mack Student Center, be moved to another location due to the fact that he owned slaves. When the administration at Hofstra University decided not to remove the statue, they continued their protest by carrying signs around campus challenging their peers to ask them about issues they see on their campus.

Student activist, Anna Kyriazakou, cites transphobia as an issue and wants students to ask about it.
Bigotry is another issue that Wesley Louis-Charles says students could face at Hofstra.
Michelle Boo holds a sign as a reminder that these students still object to the statue’s placement.
