Responding to the Crisis

Following the 2010 bias-related incidents, UC officials released public statements denouncing what had occurred and calling on students to practice civility. At UC Davis, staff and volunteers at the LGBTRC negotiated with university administration to allow the homophobic graffiti covering the center’s walls to remain for one day; they lobbied to do this in order to let the hate speak for itself. In the days that followed, members of the university community gathered together to vent emotions and discuss their next steps.
