As faculty members of the UCSF/SFSU Graduate Program in Physical Therapy, we are saddened by the massacre that occurred at Pulse, a nightclub, in Orlando, Florida on June 12, 2016. We stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ, Latino, and immigrant communities who may have been targeted at this nightclub on “Latin Night.” We mourn with the victims and survivors, the families of all involved, and the entire community of Orlando. We also feel compassion for the Muslim community where an assumed relationship with the gunman has ignited conversations of blame and stereotyping.
