thursday, april 1, 2021
CAMPUS CENTER (FRONT)
Although Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is nationally recognized in May of each year, Hanover College will celebrate AAPI Heritage Month in April in order to dedicate a full month to commemorating the accomplishments, history and rich cultures of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. We are encouraging the entire campus community (students, faculty, staff, and administrators), to be part of this opening event. Several student leaders will be in different locations around campus and ready to walk people to the Campus Center. We will have a moment of silence for the eight Asian-American lives lost on March 16, 2021. Some of our student leaders will speak and everyone will be given the opportunity to either speak or recite a poem. We will end with a chant custom to our campus (hopefully this chant will become a Hanover tradition). This event will be about Hanover standing up against racism! If you would like to paint a sign for the rally, sign painting will be held in the WAC on Tuesday, March 30th, from 1:00 pm -5:00 pm. All materials will be supplied. We hope to see everyone at the rally on Thursday!
