Last night in Clark Hall, Hoos for Israel hosted an event called Building Bridges. They were met by a group of protesters who entered the meeting with a megaphone. Police were called to the scene.
Truman Brody-Boyd spoke with WUVA News about the events that unfolded.
Today, Dean Allen Groves sent an email to the entire school acknowledging the event: “We can only learn from each other if space exists to exchange ideas freely and without disruption from those with whom we may disagree. Indeed, having watched the video from last night, it appears clear the Jewish students and their rabbi extended an offer to engage in dialogue with the protesters disrupting their meeting, but that overture was rejected.”
