On Monday, more than 100 MU students stood outside Jesse Hall and protested alleged plans to shakeup staff at the university’s social justice centers. Students said they are worried that some or all of the staff at these centers would be fired, and that the shakeup would affect the quality of services at the centers. Students also shared personal stories about how those staff members have helped them get through traumatic experiences on campus and find their sense of community. MU says the allegations are false and that they are simply restructuring the social justice centers - but much remains unclear.

This week, guest host Isabella Paxton takes your calls! How would the proposed restructuring plan affect you? What do these social justice centers mean to you?
