Election Well-Being

Free Expression Tents  Facilitated Dialogues Other Election Week Events

Free Expression Tents

Use the outdoor tents that have been put up on the Booth Plaza and the BU Beach on the Charles River Campus. These outdoor tents are for BU students’ political expression – you bring your own screen via your mobile device or computer. (We’ll place microphones in the spaces for you to announce results and talk as you see fit). The soapbox – look it up – is yours. Go ahead and use it! If you gather, for political expression, even under the outdoor tents, wear your mask or face cover and maintain 6 feet of physical distance or more, especially when you’re singing, chanting, and raising your voice for your candidate or cause.

Facilitated Dialogues

Join us to share your thoughts, talk with peers, and express how you are walking through this election season. Be silent, vent, express your thoughts. Be as you are. Feel free to attend a small group facilitated conversation.


Other election events are available on our Voter Engagement page.
