Dear Spalding Community,
We wanted to make you aware that a demonstration organized by the New York-based, social justice organization Until Freedom is scheduled to take place 2 p.m. this afternoon, Aug. 25.
Until Freedom is organizing this non-violent march from South Central Park to the Louisville Metro Police Department Training Center. That march would figure to occur well south of our campus, but it is uncertain what activities could occur later in the day or evening.
Today’s march is the culmination of four days of peaceful, community-building events hosted by the organization. We are not aware of any danger to our campus, and Spalding University will remain open today, operating on regular schedule.
Here is a link to learn more about the work Until Freedom has been leading over the past several days.
We will monitor the situation and pass along information that affects campus via Spalding email and the E2Campus alert system. You can sign up for the alerts here:
Please keep abreast of the local news and continue to check your email as we will share any important information regarding conditions on campus.
Director of Campus Safety
