Campus Safety Alert, Threats against women on campus. Solidarity event Mon Sept 14

Yesterday, the University of Toronto issued a campus safety alert due to anonymous public threats made against women and feminists on campus (particularly against those in Women and Gender Studies and Sociology). Please know that the University and Toronto City Police are monitoring the situation very closely. The University has a variety of safety programs to support students, faculty, and staff while on campus. Please see for more information.

The following is the link to the President’s statement in response to the threats:

All members of the University committee are invited as an act of solidarity with all women-identified people and feminists on all three campuses by wearing purple on Monday, September 14. Please share  notice of this act of solidarity widely.
Individuals can show support as well by attending the CUPE 3902 Women's Caucus Demonstration Against Gendered Violence at 1 pm on Monday. Our rally begins outside of the Sociology Department (725 Spadina Ave) on the SE corner of Bloor and Spadina!
