U of G to hold Hate Crimes Vigil
The residence life staff at the University of Guelph are holding a Hate Crimes Vigil at the Bullring Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. to reflect on those who suffer when hatred and intolerance go unchallenged. This free event is open to everyone.
President Mordechai Rozanski; Patrick Case, director of the Human Rights and Equity Office; Lucy Reid from the Multi-Faith Resource Team; and student representatives from various organizations will address participants.
The evening will include a multimedia presentation, works of art, poetry and a musical performance by singer/songwriter Carla Klassen. A candlelight walk across campus in memory of those lost as a result of hate crimes will follow the ceremony.
