WHAT'S HAPPENING

Wear the color orange in support of those who have lost loved ones to gun violence and to raise awareness. Gun violence affects everyone in our community. We lost 21 people–members of our communities–to gun violence in the five months of 2021 that have passed. One murder is too many. We must create realistic solutions to this issue and these crimes in our community. 

Every victim and survivor of violence deserves to be believed and heard, their experience honored. During Pride Month and all year long, we  offer support without judgment to all of our community members. To those who self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, non-binary and gender nonconforming, we see you. We hear you. We believe you. I AM my sister. I AM my brother. I AM them, ze and zey.
