LGBTQA Solidarity March Unites Campus Community



Around 300 people came together Tuesday night for a vigil in support of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans Queer Alliance.  On Feb 1st cleaning staff entered the LGBTQA office in the EMU to find a large swastika spray-painted on the carpet. This event is just one of many this week to build solidarity against hate in the community. An attack on one is an attack on all. For a list of related upcoming events click 'read more'.
