Hateful flyers on campus target student groups

Friday, May 17, 2019

Muslim students at the University of Minnesota were breaking their Ramadan fast on May 7 when they noticed flyers left by the door of the Al-Madinah Cultural Center in Coffman Union.

Created by a far-right political organization called the David Horowitz Freedom Center, the flyers accused multiple student groups and the campus as a whole of being anti-Semitic. The flyers are believed to be part of a national campaign targeting college campuses in the U.S., according to an email sent to the AMCC by Vice President for Equity and Diversity Michael Goh and Interim Vice Provost for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Maggie Towle. The University has condemned the flyers and has offered support to the affected students.
