Protest Faith Goldy's Invitation to Speak at the University of Waterloo
UPDATE: Goldy's talk has been CANCELLED. Thank you to all who signed! Please attend the Teach-In here at the university (date TBD). ------ This petition has been created in protest against the recent invitation of Faith Goldy to speak at our university on April 30th. The University of Waterloo is committed to inclusivity. We are a faculty and student body that is made up of many people, hailing from nations and cultures throughout the world who each provide and enrich the experiences of all. We pride ourselves in intellectual integrity. We pride ourselves in free speech, not hate speech. The recent invitation of Faith Goldy to speak at our university is an alarming reminder that spaces like ours are susceptible to damaging and harmful hate rhetoric, which has potentially dangerous consequences for marginalized faculty and students on our campus. This petition is a call to action and an urging for the university to denounce the recent decision to have Goldy speak on campus.
