Storming of our U.S. Capitol

We watched in horror yesterday as the United States Capitol was attacked and our democratic processes were threatened. Recent violent events and on-going civil unrest have highlighted devastating White Supremacist ideologies and pervasive social injustices that persist in our country and impact the well-being and mental health of our UIC students and surrounding communities.
