Sophomores Kipp Williams and Raymond Tu aim to expand outreach and inclusivity as part of their platform for running to be co-presidents of the Campus Y.
Williams and Tu spoke unopposed at their co-president forum on Feb 4. The election will be held on Feb. 12.
Currently, Williams and Tu are director of membership and director of communications respectively, positions that work closely together. Williams and Tu have both had the opportunity to work with the many sub-committees in the Campus Y as well as get to know each other, leading them to create a dual-campaign.
Williams and Tu’s campaign is centered around the idea of "building bridges," which entails better representing people of color and other historically marginalized communities. Williams said the Campus Y has been historically white, but that many committees are majorly represented by people of color and that the voice of the Campus Y should reflect all involved.
“All people should come here and feel empowered to better themselves and our community,” Williams said.
