South Carolina CPA Responds to the Orlando Shooting

Greetings Colleagues,

As more details regarding the horrific tragedy in Orlando continue to emerge, we are deeply saddened by the immense loss of such promising lives. Many of those lost and directly impacted by these events could be our students we work with on a daily basis, and as student affairs professionals, we must find ways to promote compassion and understanding in our campus communities that values all members, including our LGBTQA students, faculty, and staff and their allies.

Implementing Allyship in Supporting LGBTQ+ Communities

On Sunday, June 12, 2016, I woke up to the news of the Orlando Massacre. I did not want to believe that it actually happened. I did not want to admit that so many LGBTQ lives of color perished in such a horrible way. For days, I did not exactly know how to feel. I was experiencing a whirlwind of emotions including sorrow, sadness, anger, and grief, among others. Being exposed to the media did not help in reconciling my mind and heart.
