The NAACP has lent their hand to the University of Missouri student body in order to help them feel comfortable in reporting discrimination on campus.
After many repeated failed efforts in reporting racism on campus, students took to social media to report the problems they were facing, which caught the attention of the President of the NAACP of Jefferson City in St. Louis, Nimrod Chapel, who resolved to create a hotline for students.
The hotline number is 844-NAACP-HELP, and students can call when they don’t feel comfortable reporting to authorities. Following the resignation of former President Tim Wolfe and Chancellor R. Browen Loftin, 2 Caucasian male students have been arrested for the threats.
According to Chapel, those who call to report a complaint will remain anonymous and if they involve law enforcement, the case will be thoroughly viewed and handled.
