Angelina Malfitano Memorial Collection


The LGBTQIA Resource Center library is named in honor of Angelina Malfitano, whose contributions to the Center and the UC Davis community live on in her legacy of advocacy, service, and leadership. Angelina served as a student intern at the LGBTQIA Resource Center and was a Student Assistant to the Chancellor in 2005-2006. Her dedication to student activism continues to inspire the work of our center – may her activist spirit forever burn brightly in all of us.
