The march has become an opportunity for all members of the community to affirm the dignity of every person and to promote an environment free from intolerance and persecution. Many campus organizations have participated in the march, including the American International Organization, Student Senate, STAND, Voices (the student feminist group), Chapel organizations and sororities and fraternities.
University officials, faculty and staff will gather in solidarity with members of CBS and other campus student groups to walk into Springfield and share with the city the diversity and unity at Wittenberg.
The goals of the Unity March are best summed up by a mission statement released recently by a Wittenberg Diversity Task Force. It read: "Wittenberg University is a community which values the diversity of human experience. We affirm the dignity of every person, and seek to foster a spirit of understanding and respect for one another. Our community includes and respects diversity of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender, ability, religion and nationality."
