The University’s Leadership Team is orchestrating an anti-racism rally that will take place on the steps of Wilson Hall on Wednesday, April 4 at 2:00 p.m.
The Leadership Team, consisting of senior Kendall Walker, sophomore Vanessa Bernal, and freshmen Virginia Biase and Matthew Vargo will orchestrate the logistics of the rally. The ultimate goal of the group is to establish a Multi-Cultural Center on campus.
“We want the community at Monmouth to hear from their fellow students and faculty about experiences with racism, whether personal or viewed by another,” said Vargo, who had the initial idea for the rally. “We believe that the student’s voices will be more powerful and impactful because we are each other’s peers.”
A petition also exists online regarding the creation of an on-campus multicultural center, as well as an anti-racism pledge.
A full preview of this event will appear in the April 4 edition of The Outlook.
