Responding to the May 14th Tragedy

In response to the horrific mass shooting that took place in Buffalo on May 14th, #UBLawResponds is actively engaging with community partners to determine how best to provide legal and policy assistance through our Clinic Student Attorneys.

We are learning from on-the-ground frontline workers and those most impacted by the shooting as to how we can best direct our efforts. Our #UBLawResponds Community Engagement Legal Clinic will provide representation and advice to help the community heal and fight for both individual and systemic justice.

Racial Justice Toolkit and Other Resources

Complied by the University at Buffalo Law Library, our Racial Justice Toolkit is a guide to help those who are interested in learning more about systemic racism and ways they can be more involved in the fight for social justice.  

Resources in response to the May 14th tragedy have been added to the toolkit, including a list of organizations that can assist victims' families and the community, and agencies and groups accepting donations and looking for volunteers.
