The SSA community is devastated by the senseless violence that occurred in Orlando. This tragedy has bolstered our commitment to our work and research in prevention -- specifically in preventing violence and intolerance in our communities. We also re-commit to promoting understanding and community and to our mission to working toward a more just and humane society through research, teaching, and service to the community.
