During PRIDE month, we reflect on the 49 lives lost in the Orlando PULSE nightclub shooting on June 12, 2016. Our thoughts are with the families who lost loved ones during that tragic day and the 53 people who were wounded in this senseless act of hatred and violence against the LGBTQ community.
“In the face of hate and violence, we will love one another. We will not give in to fear or turn against each other. Instead, we will stand united, as Americans, to protect our people, and defend our nation, and to take action against those who threaten us.” – President Barack Obama
