Lunar New Year Tragedy
A message from Dr. Hendry Ton, Associate Vice Chancellor for Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion published January 23, 2023.
We are deeply saddened by the tragedy that occurred this weekend in Monterey Park, at the beginning of Lunar New Year celebrations. There are many unanswered questions that plague families, communities and the public when there are senseless acts of violence and tragedy. We recognize that there are many grieving because of the recent shooting in Monterey Park and want to let you know that you are not alone and we support you.
