At ASA College, we believe it is important to register the causes, effects, and pervasiveness of domestic violence. As the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence states, “Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) evolved from the ‘Day of Unity’ in October 1981 observed by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
As a country, we observe this month to reflect upon the many successes that those of Hispanic origins have contributed to our country. From political leadership and entrepreneurship, to sports, culture and entertainment, the United States has been enriched by numerous contemporary Hispanic figures such as Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Alberto ‘Beto’ Perez (Zumba Fitness), World Champion boxer Oscar De La Hoya, author Julia Alvarez, and musician actress Jennifer Lopez – to name very few.
On Tuesday, a tragedy we are all still trying to come to terms with affected the lives of the ASA Community. As you may know, a shooting occurred at the Stadium Hotel in Miami Gardens which involved ASA College student athletes that participated in our football program. One person is deceased and two people are being treated for injuries sustained during the incident.
In light of today’s incident, all classes have been canceled for Tuesday, August 10th. Classes will resume tomorrow as scheduled.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by this tragedy. Please be advised that we are here to provide assistance and counseling services. Do not hesitate to contact the College’s Student Advisement team for comfort and guidance during this time.
We stand with the Cuban people as they practice their inalienable rights against the will of an oppressive government. As we know, the Freedom of Speech and the Freedom to Peacefully Assemble, rights protected by the First Amendment of our Constitution, are integral to the mission of our college academic community. One cannot learn and grow without self-expression and the opportunity to listen to those who can teach from their own diverse experiences. Now is the time for the Cuban government to listen as the people speak. The government must hear their needs and learn to provide for and protect their people.
