Message from NASA President Elizabeth Johannson
NASA is shocked and saddened by the tragic shooting that took place last evening at a mosque in Quebec, during evening prayers. Condolences go out to the victims and their families.
NASA stands strong with the Muslim community here on campus, in Edmonton and across the province. We are a diverse community and it is our diversity that makes us strong. We appreciate and echo President Turpin’s strong statements on the University of Alberta’s ongoing commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity, including his statement Sunday afternoon affirming the University's commitment to support members of our community affected by the U.S. travel ban.
We are encouraging all NASA members and the University community at large to show their support for Alberta’s Muslim community by attending the vigil at the AB Legislature this evening at 6:30 pm. For more information, see https://www.facebook.com/event
In Solidarity, Elizabeth Johannson
