Last week a Bridgewater State Univeristy student journalist was allegedly attacked because of an opinion article she wrote that supported gay marriage. In response, members of the student body organized a rally they called a "March Against Hate" that, according to police, drew about 300 supporters.
"Students March Against Hate" became an official event on Facebook the day after the alleged attack on Bridgewater State University student Destinie Mogg-Barkalow. Some faculty cancelled classes and encouraged their classes to attend the rally.
The rally began at the Moakley Center on east campus and was led by event organizers Diana Ramos and Kayla Cummings. The group marched through campus and was heard chanting from the stairs of Boyden before they were seen.
