About Loyola Rising
(bio from 2018)
Kassina Dwyer, Alexandra Heredia, and Rachael Martines are three students from Loyola University Maryland and members of the student movement Loyola Rising. Loyola Rising emerged for the first time in solidarity with the Baltimore Uprisings of 2015, after the murder of Freddie Gray. Last spring in 2018, they organized a campus-wide, multifaceted demonstration on the anniversary of Gray’s death to call Loyola’s attention back to the daily violence that impacts our society and Baltimore City, especially in the midst of conversations of mass shootings in our nation. They are and will continue to be Loyola Rising.
