Dear Provost Regehr,

UTFA Statement on Recent Social Media Attacks on Students

October 19, 2016

The University of Toronto Faculty Association strongly condemns the threats against U of T’s trans students and others, recently conveyed through social media. UTFA deplores the related acts of violence that have occurred on the University’s campuses. UTFA recognizes the need for and supports the development of a new University of Toronto policy on sexual violence, which includes protection from harassment based on gender identity and/or gender expression, as outlined in the Ontario Human Rights Code.
