LAS @ UofT Statement of Solidarity with Communities in Mexico and the Caribbean

The Latin American Studies Program at the University of Toronto wishes to extend its support to all those who have been impacted by the recent and devastating earthquakes in Mexico and hurricanes in the Caribbean. These events have caused loss of lives as well as extreme damage and hardship affecting huge numbers of people in the region, and their loved ones worldwide.

Our program brings together faculty, students, and other community members engaged in the study of topics relevant to the Latin American region and its Canadian diasporas. We are also deeply committed in our solidarity with our Latin American colleagues, families and friends, many of whom have felt the effects of these disasters.

Recovery will take time, as will adjustment to shifting realities in both Mexico and the Caribbean. We express our sorrow, but also our commitment to re-imagining and strengthening our collective support for the affected communities as they work to rebuild.

Susan Antebi
Director, Latin American Studies Program
