CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The University of Northern Iowa faculty and staff have planned an event in an effort to respond to the recent posts on the social media app Yik Yak.

On Thursday, the staff has planned a Day of Solidarity. It will take place near the fountain between the Maucker Union and Rod Library at noon.

In response to the discriminatory comments, UNI faculty and staff started a grassroots campaign called, "We Can Do Better." The purpose of the campaign was to support those who have been discriminated against.
