January 25, 2018 08:36 AM

Activists at Saint John Fisher College had an outreach event Wednesday after they say offensive fliers showed up on campus.

The fliers used the language of feminist activists, including "No means no," to address the issue of illegal immigration.

The school was quick to condemn the fliers and remove them.

Students had several tables stationed outside the dining hall during lunch hours Wednesday, so that students could discuss their feelings and thoughts about the issue in a one-on-one manner. 

"The goal here is that we have trained moderators in sustained dialogue to sit and listen actively in a no judgment zone and keep confidentiality so we don't repeat the stories, but we understand of where the main campus is and to take the temperature of campus and give people a space to vent,'" Dr. said Jenna Rossi, an associate professor of American studies.

There will be a town hall meeting on campus on Thursday at 12:30.

Officials at other area colleges say they have not seen any fliers like this on campus.
