No Room for Hate at UWM

On May 6th a student held up a sign of a swastika at a public event celebrating Israeli Independence Day in Spaights Plaza, at the heart of UW-Milwaukee’s main campus. While free speech protects the student’s right to express even the most loathsome views, we use our free speech to denounce the presence at UWM of this hateful Nazi symbol. We stand together as a UWM community to affirm that there is no room for hate at UWM. We applaud the university community for speaking out, and especially those students who voiced their resistance to the message of this symbol.
