Juniata College sponsors field trip to Black Lives Matter protest

Last month, Juniata College encouraged students to attend a school-sponsored field trip to participate in a Black Lives Matter protest.

“JUNIATA STUDENTS, ARE YOU READY TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY?!” blares the caption to a flyer posted on the Facebook page of Juniata’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion. “You are invited to join UMOJA (African American Student Alliance) with support from Juniata staff, faculty, and various departments to join a national protest in NYC this Saturday [December 13, 2014].”

The destination referred to in the post was the “Millions March NYC” rally to protest the killings of unarmed black civilians by police officers, which according to HuffPost featured around 30,000 participants, but remained peaceful and did not lead to any arrests.

“Are you sick of sitting around and doing nothing about the injustices in our justice system,” the post asks students, encouraging them to “Protest Police Brutality this Saturday!” and “Be part of a national movement!”

Although the organizers covered the cost of bus fare to Newark, New Jersey, attendees were asked to bring $10 for train tickets into New York City and food for the day.

Spokespersons for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion did not respond by press time to requests from Campus Reform for details regarding the number of students who participated in the event or the nature and extent of institutional support for the excursion.
