On the eve of the anniversary of the Pulse tragedy, Orlando gathered at city hall to not only mourn those we lost, but to commit to taking action to ensure that these tragedies do not continue to plague our country. In a program lead by Representative Carlos Guillermo Smith, those who gathered were addressed by survivors and families of those affected by Pulse and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community and faith leaders. Two major themes were present throughout the night; love and taking action to end the senseless gun violence that has victimized far too many. This is but the first of many other events planned this week and a detailed list can be found at the One Pulse Foundation website.
