Orlando Statement

CAPS joins the UH community and the world in expressing how deeply saddened we are by the tragedy that occurred in Orlando. This shooting took place at Pulse, a venue that serves the LGBTQ and Latino communities in Orlando. We recognize that UH students from a number of different communities are being impacted and may need support. We stand as an ally to anyone who is being judged or persecuted for their gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnic identity, or religious affiliation. If you would like support during this very challenging time, or at any point in the future, please call CAPS at 713-743-5454 or stop by our office for a same day consultation. CAPS is located in room 226 of Student Service Center 1.
