Angelina Malfitano was one of the Student Assistants to the Chancellor with her partner in crime, Eric Zamora. She was short, loud, and always ready for social justice. She was previously the Community Intern at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Resource Center 04-05, Chair of the ASUCD Gender and Sexuality Commission 03-04, and did random stuff like drumming in the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh! and checking email compulsively. Her motto, TANG! which stands for Take care of yourself, Ask why?, No regrets, and be Genuine, is painted on an upper wall of the LGBT Resource Center.

On Tuesday, May 30th at 9:13am Angelina Malfitano died in a car accident on [wikipedia]Highway 12 near Rio Vista. She is buried in the Holy Cross Cemetery, 2200 East 18th street in [wikipedia]Antioch, CA her home town.

There is a [WWW]Guest Book set up to leave memories and notes. The UCD Women's Resource and Research Center has a [WWW]webpage dedicated to Angelina.

On the second anniversary of her passing, the ASUCD Senate passed a resolution requesting that the ASUCD Conference Room be renamed to the Angelina Malfitano Conference Room. The request was approved by the Chancellor, and the room where her commission met (sometimes) now bears her name.

In late September 2005 Angelina wrote a short essay entitled "Believing in the Power of Your Impact":

2006-05-31 01:03:09   Can anyone PLEASE let us know what happened? —AdamGerber

2006-05-31 02:26:45   I've been told that she was driving back to Davis from Antioch this morning...people speculate that she fell asleep behind the wheel, because she swerved into oncoming traffic and was instantly killed by the head-on collision. I'll have further details in the morning when my reporter calls the highway patrol... Another note: There's a memorial being held for Angelina today (Wednesday) at 10 a.m. in the LGBTRC. —BrianChen

2006-05-31 09:32:40   I only had the privilege of talking with her once, for her project on the history of queer activism and community at UCD, but it was a wonderful conversation, and I know all about her work for this community. What a terrible, tragic loss. My heart is with everyone who knew her and loved her. —BethFreeman

2006-07-25 17:33:40   Angelina was a saint. I believe her biggest miracle happened at her funeral, where, in a Catholic church, an LGBT rainbow flag flew during the ceremony. I have never seen that before and probably never will again, but it's testimony to her work in the queer community. —JamesSchwab
