64 Mister Rogers Quotes That Will Make Today a Beautiful Day

Mr. Rodgers was such an interesting figure, and for those who don't know who he is, check him out. I am including a list of his quotes here today, because I know that we are struggling.

The Center is thinking of all of you, the students, faculty, staff, alumni and community partners struggling to get through the days. We know that we are all grieving what we are missing. We know many of you are working harder with less, and many have been laid off. We know that people are taking care of a sick loved one, or lost one or who may be sick themselves. We know there are those you who struggling with their living situation, or their mental health, or with putting food on the table. We know that you are taking care of your kids, or your siblings or your parents. We know you are raising money for families, or making masks, or helping how you can. We know that all the injustices we fought against are still out there and perhaps clearer than before. We know what kind of people you are and we know you will preserve and make the world better than it is. We know you are out there. We are thinking of you. You are not alone. In Solidarity, CCAR.

We at the CCAR wanted to let you know about our 2020 EVERYDAY ACTIVISM CHALLENGE! We thought you might be interested in participating and/or sharing with others…

Every April, we organize an Everyday Activism Challenge in which Pace students, staff, and faculty pledge to commit personal actions to have a positive environmental impact. This year, in light of COVID-19 and Pace’s move to remote learning, we are expanding our Everyday Activism Challenge to include advocacy, community building and self-care that you can do from wherever in the world you are social distancing!

What’s our goal?

We know that in times of stress and uncertainty, a sense of purpose can be a calming and motivating force. In bringing the Pace community together around issues we all care about, we hope to foster a sense of solidarity and develop skills that can be used to extend everyday activism beyond this month!

How will it work?
Every weekday in April we will be posting a daily challenge on our instagram and twitter (@ccarnyc and @ccarplv). These challenges will include quick advocacy-oriented to-dos, virtual events to attend, topics to learn about, and more! Our blog and weekly newsletter will also contain details for those not on social media.

We encourage you to follow along with our challenge and send us pictures/videos of you completing the tasks, or engaging in your own form of everyday activism! You can post your photos on social media with #EverydayActivism2020 or send photos and/or thoughts to [email protected] or [email protected]. We will share experiences on our social media and blog throughout April!

Take a look at the topics we will be covering in the first few weeks….

Have an idea for an action? Email us ([email protected] or [email protected]) and we can work with you to include it in the challenge!

We look forward to hearing about your Everyday Activism 2020 experience!

How Helping Others Can Relieve Anxiety and Depression

In this time of uncertainty and stress, we at the CCAR wish for you to educate yourself with reputable sources, keep yourself and your loved ones as safe as you can, advocate for people who don't have what we do, and remember that in helping others can help yourself too. If you want to share how you are doing it, feel free to post your ideas here so that others might be inspired. We can be scared and still do good.

Pace University is eager to share the following opportunity for current students: the United Nations Academic Impact and Millennium Campus Network (MCN) Millennium Fellowship. This program convenes, challenges, and celebrates bold student leadership advancing the Sustainable Development Goals on campus and in communities. As a Millennium Fellow, students will hone skills, take concrete action, and earn a certificate of recognition from United Nations Academic Impact and MCN. There is no cost for selected students. Undergraduate leaders who are committed to being change agents should apply as soon as possible (rolling admissions, Class of 2020 will run August-December 2020).

Admission to the program is rolling, with a final deadline of April 30th, 2020. However, students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as priority will be given to those who apply by the end of February! In order for Pace to be eligible as a “Campus Hub”, a cohort of at least 8 students (but preferably more) must be selected for the fellowship opportunity. The application process includes students outlining a project (can be a new idea or a current project they are already working on for a class or research) that is in line with one of the Sustainable Development Goals. If you are interested in knowing more please contact Dr. Susan Maxam at [email protected].

This is an issue Pace students have been active on.
