The University of Guelph issued an anti-racism solidarity statement earlier this week.
The university’s statement follows the Black Lives Matter protests happening across the world.
“We stand in solidarity with Black students, faculty and staff at the U of G against racism and violence during this troubling time and always,” said the statement posted to the university’s website on Sunday.
“We offer support to anyone feeling vulnerable or at risk,” the Uof G said in the statement. “We are here as allies to the Black community and will do our part to ensure respect, safety and dignity on our campuses.”
