Today kicks off Dominican University's Hate Free Week. SGA was sitting in the social hall armed with a petition against hate and a button for all who signed. The remainder of the week will include more activities.
I'm guessing the reason behind this week is the incident that occurred at the Priory campus a few weeks ago. It was a very serious issue where a racial slur was written across a wall in the residence hall. Since then, the university has been trying to promote hate-free actions and programs.
Several RA's and other members of Res Life have been facilitating programs about Hate Free Zones and anti-hate mentalities.
I love that the university is doing something because of this horrible incident. I am curious what is in store for the rest of the week, and, more importantly, whether or not it will make a difference.
