Nabra, Charleena, Philando.

We are saddened and outraged at the murders and injustices that unfolded over this weekend. Earlier today, the Gender and Sexuality Center and the Women’s Center held a space for folks to grieve and take care of one another. As other spaces are hosted on campus, we will share info about these gatherings via our social media and other networks.Rest in peace Nabra Hassanen, Charleena Lyles, Philando Castile.
