A group known as American Vanguard sent an email to the University of Hartford with contents regarding threats to America stating that the White race will be a minority in the United States by 2044.

There was nothing relating to violence, but the group would like people to stand together and join the White Student Union. These threats were spread to universities across the country and will soon try to continue with the potential use of fliers around campus.

There was no reason in particular for these attacks, but the university would like to ensure that students are not effected by this type of behavior and to honor the values of the university.

"Prejudice or hatred based on race, nationality, religion, or gender has no place here," President Walter Harrison says through an email to the campus expressing the values and the diversity of the university.
