As Yale University is looking into allegations of racism, students are taking action.
Hundreds of students packed the Battell Chapel on Wednesday night to voice their concerns about their safety and what to do moving forward.
Students said the meeting was needed.
“Yale is a place where people care about each other, regardless of background by and large,” said student Molly Zeff.
Students said the series of racial incidents are shocking and disturbing.
“Institutionalized racism and those kind of foundational problems, they exist in every atmosphere and what's important to remember is that people are coming from all types of backgrounds to Yale,” said Elyse Galloway, a graduate student.
Eyewitness News learned that the university is looking into who was behind several posters recently found on campus that featured racist words.
One of the signs said “no more dead black children.”
The words also appeared on a sign that said “all lives matter.”
“The phrase 'all lives matter' diminishes centuries and centuries of pain and discrimination that a minority in our society has experienced,” Zeff said.
