Hello supporters, 

In a recent Town Hall meeting with SFU athletes and administration of SFU Athletics, it was reported that Simon Fraser University has undergone a name change process! A recommendation will be completed by the end of July and proposed to President Petter in August. After this, SFU will make a decision stating what they will do regarding the name change. 

You can see this update in the article attached. 

OUR NEXT STEP: Continue to apply pressure! 

Although this is great news, things can go either way in agreeance or disagreeing with the proposal. President Petter is the direct decision-maker in this name change proposal and it is vital that everyone sends these emails to Petter and Joy Johnson (emails are located in the petition description). Note: if help is needed that we have a google template to send in the petition description.

I have had the opportunity to speak on my past experiences as a student-athlete in a recent article by The Park Journal. In this article, you will find how this name has impacted my experience at Simon Fraser University. Please take a read, I promise it will be a great read!

Blessings!
