The Diversity Committee with the support from Department leadership and administration hosted this event. There have been multiple incidents of intolerance on campus recently: swastikas, the noose, anti-immigrant chalking, white student union website, and offensive party costumes.
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.
