Stephenson Publishes Op-Ed in Orlando Sentinel

Rollins Professor of Environmental Studies Bruce Stephenson, who is on sabbatical in Portland, Oregon, penned an Op-Ed for the Orlando Sentinel.

The article, “‘We are Orlando’ in Portland, Oregon: Letters” follows Stephenson’s reflection on this months’ tragic shooting in Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.

“The deaths of 49 people at the hand of a madman wielding an assault rifle is barbarism, and attributing their murder to a fanatical religious sect is the manifestation of evil in a society founded on religious tolerance,” Stephenson writes.
