Orlando Nightclub Shooting

SIU-Carbondale is creating a new series of forums for the fall semester called Salukis SPEAK.

SPEAK stands for Solutions for Peace and Equality through Advocacy and Knowledge.

From Europe to the Middle East and Asia, condemnation is nearly universal following the nightclub attack in Orlando, Florida by a man police say called 911 and declared is support for an Islamic State group leader.

WSIU's Brad Palmer talked with Travis Tucker, the staff adviser for the Saluki Rainbow network at SIU-C about how the shooting was especially personal for him and how the LGBTQ community is reacting.
