To our community,
I write in recognition of the atrocious events that took place on June 28th at the University of Waterloo, where three members of the UW community were violently attacked in acts that targeted gender-expression and identity. Yukon University stands united with the University of Waterloo and the members of its community as they cope with the shocking tragedy of these hate-filled attacks on their campus.
The targeted nature of these attacks and their occurrence during Pride Month deepens their severity. A place of education should be a place that is free of hate. Yukon University does not condone any form of violence, hatred or bigotry and will continue to proudly advocate justice, inclusion, diversity and equality.
If you need support during this time, please see the list of resources below.
We extend our deepest sympathies to all who have been affected by this hateful act.
