RRCC President’s Response to Recent Acts of Violence

Candle with Rose

We are devastated, heartbroken, and angry by the violence that took place at Club Q yesterday. We condemn this act of hate and stand with our friends and family in the LGBTQ+ community in mourning those that lost their lives and honor those that were injured.
In addition, we are grappling with the murders of the students in Idaho and Virginia. I continue to be hopeful that the work we are doing on campus to have those difficult discussions will make a difference.   Hatred of any kind needs to be eliminated from our hearts, speech, and actions.  Please join me in expressing our gratitude for one another and the work we are trying to achieve.
