Statement on Vandalism at Four Directions

Statement on Vandalism at Four Directions

July 1, 2020

The Faculty of Education stands in solidarity with members of our community impacted by the vandalism yesterday at Four Directions. The flags that were vandalized were hung after the racist and homophobic incident at Chown Hall. This violence and discrimination has no place at our University and community. Our Indigenous and LGBTQ2S+ students, faculty, and staff must feel welcome and safe at Queen’s. We will continue to listen and work with our colleagues and students in our ongoing response to this hateful act.

ATEP Statement on the Vandalization of Indigenous and LGBTQ2S+ Flags at Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre

July 1, 2020

On Tuesday, June 30, the Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) was informed that the Indigenous and LGBTQ2S+ flags that hung proudly at Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre had been vandalized. These flags were hung in response to the previous racist and homophobic incident that occurred in a residence on campus last fall. This act of vandalism is not only cowardly but is racist, homophobic, discriminatory, and bigoted.
