Lehman Responds to Orlando Nightclub Shooting

LGBT RibbonThe Staff of the Counseling Center, Safe Zone Program, and Public Safety stand in solidarity with the victims, their loved ones, families, and community members directly affected by this recent attack on the LGBTQI community in Orlando, FL. Such acts of violence are an attack on what this country stands for. We are all affected when tragedies like this happen, whether or not we are a part of the targeted groups. We want the Lehman College Community to know that we are here to support you.

Our Safe Zone Program is committed to a healthy and safe environment for our LGBTQI students by providing education to the Lehman Community as well as building our LGBTQI Allyship. The entire Public Safety Department at Lehman has committed to the safety of Lehman LGBTQI students, staff, and faculty by training and becoming Safe Zone Allies.
