A group of UMD students, staff and faculty have organized a rally to support inclusion and diversity on the UMD campus. The event will be held Friday, October 28, 2011 from 12-1 pm at the James S. Malosky Stadium on the UMD campus.

Tory White is a student in the UMD Department of Social Work and a spokesperson for the event. "We encourage everyone on the UMD campus to come out during this time to spend an hour as a community in solidarity," she said. Members of the greater Duluth community and beyond are also invited to join. The rally will include speeches and musical performances.

Event organizers want everyone to:

Come join us and:
