We Are Orlando

June 13, 2016


We are saddened to learn of the brutal attack on patrons of a popular LGBT nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their loved ones, and the people of central Florida. The Silver School of Social Work continues to stand with those who deplore such senseless acts of hate and violence. In keeping with our professional ethics, we are committed to working toward the realization of social justice for all people.
