Re:    A Public Observance of Solidarity with the People of Japan and the
Pacific Rim

As you may already know, the University issued an expression of sympathy on
March 11, 2011 in response to the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan and
the Pacific Rim. (See the U of T home page: www.utoronto.ca).

The University will be hosting a special event entitled "A Public Observance
of Solidarity with the People of Japan and the Pacific Rim" on Tuesday,
March 29, 2011 12:00 p.m. in the Main Activity Room, Multi-Faith Centre, 569
Spadina Ave. (Eastside Spadina North of Russell St.).  All students, faculty
and staff are invited to attend.

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.  Suggestions on ways of giving have
now been added to the web page noted above (see www.utoronto.ca). The
Consulate-General of Japan in Toronto has specifically suggested donations
to the Canadian Red Cross (www.redcross.ca).  Other options are linked from
the web site.

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.

A Public Observance of Solidarity with the People of Japan and the Pacific
Rim
