Alex Trebeck Hall, University of Ottawa, 5:30 pm to 8 pm
On Wednesday, February 8th, students, professors, and staff will join together for a night of solidarity in response to the Quebec City Mosque Shooting and the Immigration Ban south of the border. UOttawa law is home to people of all cultures, religions, and identities, which we commit to protecting and respecting every day. This event is meant to inform participants of the different issues and consequences of these events in a safe environment. This event is an official launch of several solidarity initiatives UOttawa student organizations have been planning since our return from the break.
We are also setting up a donation booth; all proceeds will go to the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre and the International Refugee Assistance Project. We will have laptops set up in case you would like to donate with with a credit/debit card.
* Introductory Remarks
* Group huddles or break-out sessions with specific professors and students aimed to generate discussion around particular issues arising from these events
* Musical performances from our professors
Sandwiches, wraps, cookies, and non-alcoholic beverages will be served
We will be setting up a photobooth with whiteboards for those who wish to campaign online. We ask that you hashtag #uosolidarity.
