We extend our deepest sympathies and expression of support to our students and alumni in Orlando, Florida. This weekend’s horrific attack has shocked and saddened the entire BU Law community. We are deeply pained by this violent act of hatred that appears to have targeted the LBGTQ community. Oppression and violence in any form denigrate the rights and freedom of all Americans, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
We will keep the entire Orlando community in our thoughts and prayers, as we continue to reaffirm our commitment to equality and justice under the law for all.
Here in Boston, there will be a citywide vigil for the victims of the Orlando shooting at 6 p.m. today at City Hall Plaza.
