|Student Groups Host Rally Against Hate
Nov. 7 Event to Raise Awareness
Nov. 2, 2007 :: No. 88
There were more than 7,160 hate crime incidents reported in the United States in 2005, according to the FBI’s most recent hate crime report.
Because any hate crime is too many, members of the Association of InterCultural Awareness (AICA), Associated Students Inc. and 23 other student clubs are sponsoring the second annual Rally Against Hate from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the Quad.
Among the speakers and performers will be singer-songwriter Randi Driscoll. Attendees will be encouraged to take the stage and speak out against hate.
The three-hour program was developed to raise awareness of hate crimes, hate speech, discrimination and other forms of prejudice, and to promote tolerance, understanding and peace.
“We hope to generate a lot of interest,” said Lisa Tom, a sophomore radio-TV-film major and the event’s coordinator. “I want students to learn about what is going on.”
