The Story

On Tuesday November 28, white supremacist Lucian Wintrich attacked and physically assaulted activist Katie Gregory during his talk at the University of Connecticut, after she removed papers from his lectern. Katie, like many others, was there to express opposition to Wintrich’s platform of white supremacy.


Since Wintrich publicly identified Katie, she has received death threats and faced a coordinated campaign to have her fired from her job at Quiebaug Valley Community College (QVCC), organized by a white, ethno-nationalist mob of Wintrich followers. 


Katie now faces potential criminal charges and employment consequences because of the actions she took to oppose Wintrich’s bigotry.  


Please donate to Katie’s legal defense fund if you stand in solidarity with her as Wintrich’s followers work to destroy her livelihood.  Any funds not used to cover legal expenses will be donated to an organization fighting for racial and economic justice.
