AUFA expresses deeply heartfelt condolences to all affected by the recent mass shooting in New Zealand, followed by the shooting in the Netherlands on Monday. AUFA joins in the mourning of the victims of this terrorism. In this time of sorrow, AUFA reaffirms that it strongly condemns racism, discrimination, and religious intolerance of any kind and urges anyone who experiences threats to contact the AUFA office. AUFA would also like to remind its members that if dealing with any distressed students, Athabasca University has a Counselling Services Unit that they can approach to address matters of a personal or sensitive nature.
