Mass Shooting in Sacramento

Dear UCSF Community,

Once again, we mourn the lives lost and those injured in another mass shooting, this time early Sunday morning in Sacramento.

As our colleagues at UC Davis Health provide care to many of the shooting victims, this incident reminds us of the ongoing epidemic of gun violence. Our society must do more to address this public health crisis.

This news comes as the war in Ukraine enters its sixth week, with new reports over the weekend of atrocities targeting civilians.

The weight of these horrendous events can feel overwhelming. If you need support, I encourage you to seek UCSF’s resources for students, faculty, and staff:

Especially during times like these, let’s show each other kindness and compassion, embodying our PRIDE Values, both on campus and in our communities.
