College officials condemn poster defacement

Several incidents of defacing posters for the Queer Film Festival at the Shoreline Community College brought a quick and clear response from college leaders.

“When one of us is diminished at our college, we are all diminished,” President Cheryl Roberts said on Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014 after learning of the incidents. “As a college, we respect each individual. This value speaks to the character of our college and gets to the heart of who we are as a community of learners. These actions are not who we are or desire to be. This is an example of who we are not.”

According to reports from faculty, a number of posters for the weekly film festival were ripped down or defaced. The festival is sponsored by Project Pride, a student body association-sponsored club. In at least one case, a biblical saying was written next to the word “pride” on the poster.
