Pledge your commitment to equality and the eradication of racism
2015-04-12

 

Over the past two months, Kovsie students and staff have united against racism, and embraced equality in the No-to-Racism/Yes-to-Equality Campaign. This initiative was launched in celebration of Human Rights Month on all three UFS campuses by the Institute for Reconciliation and Social Justice, together with the SRC.

To put this vision into action, the Kovsie community can now pledge their commitment to equality and the eradication of racism at the UFS. Visit the UFS facebook page, and pledge your support electronically by liking the pledge poster.

Each of the campuses will also have the opportunity to come together and pledge their support publically on the following days:

Bloemfontein Campus: Monday 13 April 2015; Red Square; 12:45
Qwaqwa Campus: Wednesday 15 April 2015
South Campus: Friday 17 April 2015

At the Bloemfontein Campus pledge, staff and students can place their thumbprint on a canvas to endorse the campaign physically. Some t-shirts and hotdogs will also be available at the event.

The No-to-Racism/Yes-to-Equality Campaign is aligned with the declaration made by the UFS Council in November 2014, in which it was stated that “the Council of the University of the Free State believes very strongly in the human dignity, equality, and freedom of all people. Accordingly, the Council reaffirms its abhorrence of acts of racism, sexism, and unfair discrimination of any kind or in any form”.
