ANNOUNCEMENT: COVID-19

Updated 7/30/2020
 
The Writing Wrongs Board of Directors has recently made the decision to postpone the face-to-face 2020 program. Our decision was based on the following facts:
  • The coronavirus pandemic is not well-contained at this point.
  • Many schools are still undecided about fall classes or are changing their decision to hold on-campus classes.
  • While Pennsylvania is still in the Green Phase, Governor Wolf recently lowered the in-house capacity of bars and restaurants from 75 to 25 percent.
While we deeply regret having to postpone the program, we do not want to ask advisors and students to place themselves in a situation that brings increased risk to their health and safety. Even with all of our safety protocols in place, there would still be a risk. Additionally, having to adhere to the protocols and the anxiety about the coronavirus would most likely change the atmosphere of the face-to-face program and make it less enjoyable for everyone.
 
We plan to host the program at a later date, either virtually or physically. Discussion has already begun on rescheduling. Please bear with us during this uncertain time and be alert for updates.
 
Thank you all for being willing to raise awareness and understanding about racism.
