GA Tech Student Activist Fatally Shot by Campus Police; Vigil

The Metro Atlanta Democratic Socialists of America mourn the loss of Scout Schultz (pronouns they/them).  Scout was a comrade to several members who knew them from their attendance at Eat, Drink, & be Marxist, a monthly social event, as well as from their  leadership as president of the Georgia Tech Pride Alliance.  Scout will be remembered as a  kind person who fearlessly lived their life as a visible, proud member of the LGBTQ+  community.  Their tireless efforts within Pride Alliance continuously reminded us of the  ongoing struggles of the transgender, non-binary, and intersex community.  Scout’s tragic  passing reminds us that access to high quality mental health resources is vital to the  wellbeing of everyone, especially members of the LGBTQ+ community.

 STATEMENT FROM GA TECH PROGRESSIVE STUDENT ALLIANCE:

 We are distraught over the loss of Scout Schultz. They were an incredible, inspirational  member of our community and a constant fighter for human rights. Please join us in  celebrating and honoring their life and the contributions they made to campus and the  greater Atlanta community.

Starting at 4pm today we will begin to place flowers and memorabilia on 8th street in front  of West Village. 

 Monday evening, there will be a vigil at 8 pm at the Georgia Tech Campanile.

 We love Scout deeply, and we hope you will join us, along with Pride Alliance at Georgia  Tech, to share memories of their beautiful life.
