UTFA Statement on Hate Speech on University and College Campuses

August 17, 2017

The University of Toronto Faculty Association condemns in the strongest possible terms the violent and hate-filled events in Charlottesville, Virginia. UTFA is profoundly disturbed by the rhetoric of white supremacy and neo-fascism that is at the centre of these events. The faculty and librarians at the University of Toronto will continue steadfastly to defend the crucial roles for diversity, inclusiveness and equity at the University of Toronto and in Canadian society.
