In Remembrance and Solidarity
The Global Asian Studies collectively mourns the lives lost from gun violence at Club Q in Colorado Springs. We affirm our support of LGBTQIA+ communities everywhere and condemn violence stemming from homophobia and transphobia. We especially send our love, strength, and support to the LGBTQIA+ communities at UIC.
Rest in Peace: Kelly Loving (she/her), Daniel Aston (he/him), Derrick Rump (he/him), Ashley Paugh (she/her), and Raymond Green Vance (he/him)
We invite you to read the statements by the Women’s Leadership and Resource Center Director Natalie Bennett and the Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of LGBTQIA+ People.
