UF Says They're Working To Remove Loring Monument In St. Augustine

June 29, 2020

 

 

UF announced a multi-step approach to "Addressing racism and inequities" last week. Part of the plan was “removing any monuments or namings that UF can control that celebrate the Confederacy or its leaders.” 

 

In a statement to WJCT News, a UF spokesperson said "University of Florida President Kent Fuchs has stated that he is personally committed to removing any monuments or namings that UF can control that celebrate the Confederacy or its leaders. We believe the Loring monument in St. Augustine falls into that category. We are working with the appropriate parties to find the best path forward."
