Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown orders all flags at public institutions throughout Oregon to remain at half-staff until sunset on Tuesday, Oct. 6 in honor of the Roseburg community.

"As we move forward, we can honor the lives lost at Umpqua Community College best by remembering what it means to be a caring community: to demonstrate more kindness, respect each other more, and take the time to truly connect to the people around us," Governor Brown said. "This is a difficult time for all of us, and of course especially for those here in Douglas County — whose lives and families were forever changed yesterday."

The Presidential Proclamation will be posted to the White House's website.
