Acts of hate have no place in our community

Hate, in all its expressions, is unacceptable. The Faculty of Education stands in solidarity with those who experience such hatred and is committed to eradicating anti-Black racism and anti-2SLGBTQIA+ discrimination and oppression.

The anti-Black racism and anti- 2SLGBTQIA+ acts at Harriet Tubman Public School earlier this week highlight that we must continue to work to confront hate in all its forms. The Harriet Tubman Public School, named for an anti-slavery leader and educator, is an exemplar of diversity, equity and decolonization. The Faculty is proud that many of our Teacher Candidates experience such an inclusive educational community in their program. As educators, we see the power of education to cultivate diverse, equitable, anti-racist, anti-homophobic communities.
