Standing United with Orlando, Florida

June 12, 2016

Dear Members of the Brandeis Community,

In the face of the senseless and horrific tragedy in Orlando, Florida we grieve for the victims and their loved ones. This is a moment when we are called upon to respond with love, courage and strength to reaffirm the fundamental values of human rights and the equality of all people, without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation. We stand together in solidarity with these values that define us as a community. 

Horrifying acts like this can shake our sense of safety and security. So over the coming days, please take care of yourself and those around you. We encourage you to reach out to the support services offered on campus at the Brandeis Counseling Center (781-736-3730).
