Photo gallery: MRU community protests on campus for anti-racism education
By Cassie Weiss, Features Editor
On Saturday, Sept. 26, Mount Royal University (MRU) campus saw students and faculty gather together to raise their voices in protest.
With the recent Black Lives Matter movement bringing awareness to the lack of anti-racism courses at MRU, students are hoping the university will enforce mandatory classes for those who attend the school.
Approximately 50 people attended the peaceful protest, along with multiple members of the Calgary Police Service Diversity Division.
A handful of participants shared their experiences with racism on campus, before the procession marched from East Gate to West Gate. For more information, or to sign the petition, click here.
