The Election and Beyond:

The U.S. just completed a highly charged election that left a lot of people feeling confused and vulnerable. The caustic rhetoric throughout the campaigns caused many to wonder about our ability to engage in civil, fact-based conversations and to authentically listen to what others have to say. 

This guide was created by CCSF Library and the CCSF community. It is intended to support the College vision statement by providing an inclusive forum for information and resources that support student success and help the community move forward post-election.
