On May 23rd 2014, the UCSB and Isla Vista community experienced a tragic loss. In the face of adversity, our community demonstrated tremendous strength and resilience; we came together, in solidarity, to reflect and heal with one another - we remember them.
This year, let us COME TOGETHER to celebrate the lives of those we've lost and the spirit of our community.
Below please find a list of events that are scheduled to take place during this time. If you or your organization would like to contribute any additional programs or resources please feel free to contact one of the hosts listed on this page and a moderator will add your event.
