UWT memo about protests

Here’s the memo sent from University of Washington-Tacoma about the protests:

This message is being sent to all UW Tacoma faculty, staff, and students.

Based on additional information received from the Tacoma Police Department about the planned protest near campus Nov. 9 and 10, we do not expect campus operations to be disrupted. Transit, including Tacoma Link Light Rail, is expected to operate on a normal schedule without delays.

Protests near campus are expected to be peaceful. This is one site where demonstrators will gather in the city and the region. Although there were initial indications that groups intent on illegal and disruptive activity were planning to be in the area, those expectations have changed. The activity now anticipated is similar to the protests we often see in the area around the Federal Courthouse across the street.

Campus Safety will stay in constant contact with the Tacoma Police Department over the next few days. If there are any changes, updates will be provided.

Campus Safety encourages us to always be aware of our surroundings, as we would in any urban setting. If you see unusual behavior, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Campus Safety at 2-4416 or, in the event of an emergency, 2-4888.
