Remembering Orlando: Say Their Names

A year has passed since the horrific act of violence and hate against LGBTQ people in Orlando. We light a candle, still, for the victims and survivors of the Pulse shooting.

The flame is a solemn reminder. We renew our commitment, today and every day, to addressing the root causes of gender-based violence and supporting those most impacted by it. Queer people, trans people, people of color - 49 people paid with their lives for the work we all have yet to finish.
