U.S. Marshallese are among the hardest hit by COVID-19. It’s time to give a damn.

Many Americans, including Princeton students, are unaware of the Marshallese’s plight. As a group with disproportionally high rates of certain chronic conditions, access to Medicare and Medicaid could mean the difference between life and death even during regular times. During a pandemic, restricting Marshallese access to those programs is tantamount to condoning murder.

Jones ’93, Feliciano ’94 make U. history with $20M donation

For Jones and Feliciano, their gift is about making clear to students and alumni that “Princeton is a place for all of us.”

For Jones and Feliciano, the gift was sparked by a change they saw in the University’s culture of inclusivity. “As we saw the University embrace the whole alumni body, we felt more enthused and excited about reciprocating,” Feliciano explained.

Thank you for everything, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Almost immediately after the Supreme Court announced the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, friends began reaching out. The women in my life all felt the need to check in, as we collectively experienced what felt like a personal blow. Her death meant an overwhelming loss to the women and girls who want to see a future where their worth was built into the foundations of their country.

Going home to ‘Trump’s America’

This summer I was fortunate to be supported by the John C. Bogle ’51 Fellowship in Civic Service to return home and assist Dr. Erika Kitzmiller with her research project, “Youth Inequality, Mobility, and Opportunity in Red and Blue America.” I took this valuable experience as an opportunity to explore the dissonance I felt while reading Vance’s memoir and reflect on my own experience growing up in Appalachia.
