Like many, we are heartbroken by the tragic loss of life at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. As a community that supports and celebrates diversity of ethnicity, socio-economic condition, family structure, sexual orientation, and gender identity, we stand with the LGBTQ members of our school family as they try to process the events of Sunday night, aware that theirs is a very particular pain. We stand with the Muslim members of our school family as they fear being targeted based on the actions of one person. We stand with all who empathize with the LGBTQ and Muslim communities, with families and friends who lost loved ones, and with the Orlando community as they try to recover from such a horrific event. #WeAreOrlando
