Make Trent Safe Campaign

Make Trent Safe is a campaign that works with a coalition of students to demand to the administration to make the campus a more accountable, safer place for students to learn and live in.

It recognizes the marginalization of students and the identities that intersect, noting that free speech is recognized but that there is a difference between free speech and hate speech.

This was spurred by a Peaceful Protest on November 16, 2017 and a series of Community Conversations Against Discrimination. These meetings continue until we Make Trent Safe.
