Current Event @ Monterey Park

As we are slowly learning more details about Saturday night’s mass shooting in Monterey Park, CA, the Asian American Cultural Center along with the Asian/Asian American Studies Institute , the Office for Diversity & Inclusion and the other Cultural Centers and Programs mourn the loss of life and trauma that this mass shooting has caused in our community. On the eve of the celebration of the Year of the Rabbit/Cat, as families and friends were gathering in community at a local dance studio, a shooter entered the premises, killing at least 10 people and harming others. Though the motive behind this assault is still unknown, it leaves people’s lives forever changed and lost. 

As we struggle to make sense of this tragedy, we would like to remind students, faculty, and staff that the Asian American Cultural Center is a resource, a space to process and to be in community.  We also encourage folks who may need additional support to reach out to  SHaW Mental Health Resources or utilize the BeWell 24-hour support line at (833-308-3040).

Let us continue to support one another during this most difficult time.
