Davis, CA – On February 26th, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Resource Center at the University of California, Davis experienced acts of vandalism. The entrance to the LGBTRC was defaced with derogatory and hateful words that target students, staff and faculty that self-identify as Queer. For resources and support, UC Davis community members are encouraged to turn not only to the LGBTRC but also the following on-campus centers:
The LGBTRC has hosted townhall meetings working towards an action plan that will create a safer campus climate with the active involvement and input from members of the Queer communities as well as allies. Tonight, the Interfaith communities will host a vigil for peace and healing from 7-8 p.m.:
“In response to the recent acts of hate on campus, and in light of feelings of stress and unease surrounding fee increases, the interfaith community will host a vigil, creating a space where all are welcome to come and share their fears, their pain, and their hopes for the future.”
