#UTRGV today is National Gun Violence Awareness Day (June 4, 2021).

The movement started by friends of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15 year old girl who was shot and killed on a playground in Chicago on January 21, 2013, a week after marching in former President Obama’s Inaugural Parade. As a tribute to her life, friends and now many others make a statement against gun violence by wearing orange.
Some of our campus partners wear orange to call for the support to curb gun violence.
#WearOrange #gunviolenceawareness💙🧡💙

Police Memorial Week - Final (Edited)

In honor of National Police Week we recognize the service and sacrifice of federal, state, local and Tribal law enforcement. Each year, during National Police Week, our nation celebrates the contributions of law enforcement from around the country, recognizing their hard work, dedication, loyalty, and commitment. We pay special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. 🖤💙🖤

We thank our Police Honor Guard and a big thanks to Officer G. Casanova for producing this video.
