In response to Saturday’s acts of domestic terrorism in Charlottesville, CenterLink Chief Executive Officer Lora L. Tucker said, "We must choose love over hatred and positive action over lethargic blindness to the disparities, inequalities, and injustice that happens in our communities, states, our nation, and the world. LGBTQ Centers stand ready as a safe space for all.”
