Gender Identity Safety

Dear LCC campus community,

Monday's reported physical attack and harassment of a Eugene woman for being transgender both saddens and infuriates me and is inconsistent with the values of Lane Community College. This type of behavior has no place in our community. Lane is a diverse and inclusive community where we promote a learning environment that values gender identity safety, wellbeing, and respect.

If you would like to find support with absorbing the impact of this event as well as how you could become active with transngender support, please feel empowered to go to our Gender Equity Center, located at Building 1, Room 202, or contacting the GEC at You may also contact the Mental Health and Wellness Center at for support.

Take good care,
