The Tulane community is horrified and saddened by the acts of hate and violence that occurred over the weekend in Buffalo, Houston and Southern California. Our hearts break, once more, for innocent lives lost, for those injured and traumatized, for their loved ones and for our nation as a whole.
We are reaching out to students from the cities and surrounding communities impacted by the mass shootings that took place over the weekend to assist them in any way we can. If you need any help please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or see the resources linked in this post. We will also host a special virtual gathering on May 18 from 4-5 p.m., “Remembering the Value of BIPOC Lives and Deepening Our Racial Healing.” Registration details are available via the link in this post.

Remembering the Value of BIPOC Lives and Deepening Our Racial Healing: A Tulane Community Gathering
Join us as a community as we grieve the lives lost to racist and nationalist murders in Buffalo, NY and Laguna Woods, CA this past weekend. We know our Tulane community is hurting right now on many levels, and we want to have a space to gather to remember the value of BIPOC lives and how we can counter white supremacy that drives anti-Blackness, anti-semitism, heterosexism, and so many other intersectional hatreds. In our space, we will come together to grieve and remember the importance of taking action as community members to work for justice. Featured speakers are: Dr. Jinaki Flint (Counseling and Psychological Services), Carolyn Barber-Pierre (Student Affairs), Anneliese Singh (EDI Office), and more. Register at this link.
