A Public Observance of Solidarity with the People of Japan and the Pacific Rim
Hosted by the University of Toronto
Tuesday, March 29
12:00 p.m.
Main Activity Room
Multi-Faith Centre, 569 Spadina Ave. (Eastside Spadina North of Russell St.).

This event will be an opportunity for our community to reflect on the devastating impact of the earthquake and tsunami, and show our solidarity with those who have been directly and indirectly affected by these events.

In a community as generous and innovative as the University of Toronto, many opportunities to help are already emerging with several student-lead initiatives completed (and more have been planned).  We are sure that this kind support will continue over the coming weeks and months as the needs of those in this region continue to emerge.

If you have questions about the event, please contact Joan Griffin in the Office of the Vice-Provost, Students at 416-978-2083 or via email to joan.griffin@utoronto.ca .

All students, faculty and staff are invited to attend.
