Supporting Asian Students at UVA

Members of our UVA community come here from all over the country and the globe, and we know that violence in the news outside of Charlottesville impacts us all in multiple ways.

A word from the Women's Center

Supporting Iranian Students at UVA

The Women’s Center stands in solidarity with our Iranian students and colleagues at UVA. In particular, we recognize the emotional distress they are experiencing on behalf of their loved ones, family and friends, who are protesting Mahsa Amini’s murder and on behalf of the human rights of Iranian women and girls.

Working for Justice that Honors the Dignity of All
