Letter from Chancellor Fox & VC Rue RE anti-LGBT hate speech

To the UC San Diego community:

This week, outside community members appeared on Library Walk waving signs and shouting hurtful and upsetting speech directed towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. These actions defy our sense of civility, decency and UC San Diego's Principles of Community, and affect our faculty, students and staff, as well as guests and visitors to our campus.
