ASUNM to UNM: Proclaim support for Muslim students
by David Lynch
In the wake of recent attacks targeting Muslims on American college campuses and around the world, ASUNM unanimously passed a cautionary resolution at Wednesday's meeting urging UNM administration to state their opposition to Islamophobia.
Sen. Udell Calzadillas Chavez, who introduced Resolution 6S, said there is a widespread culture of fear and ignorance that perpetuates violence against Muslims. The purpose of the resolution is to provoke better understanding of Islam in the UNM community.
"This is a proactive approach to events in the United States and around the world," he said.
