Daytime/Flashlight Vigil Against Acts of Intolerance

Thursday, May 5 – 3:30 pm, Atrium, Psychology Building

The Diversity Committee with the support from Department leadership and administration is hosting this event. As many of you know, there have been multiple incidents of ntolerance on campus recently: swastikas, the noose, anti-immigrant chalking, white student union website, and offensive party costumes.

Current Action:
In order to show solidarity with those directly targeted by these actions; in order to express our strong belief that acts of intolerance and structural violence deeply affect and hurt all of us; in order to end the semester on a note of witnessing and honoring inclusivity.

Bring your flashlights and phones to light up the atrium. If you have a poem, song or a brief message you would like to share at the Vigil, email Elaine Shpungin as soon as possible:

If you have friends, family, or colleagues who are not in the Psychology Department please feel free to bring then along. All are welcome. If you have questions, concerns or comments about the Vigil, please email Elaine Shpungin, current chair of the Diversity Committee (address above).
