Valencia President Shugart's Pulse Speech

Pulse Orlando

"...a gunman at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Fla., perpetrated the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. He killed 49 people and injured more than 50." NPR

"For me, what I have been fighting for since Day 1 is to make sure that what is not whitewashed from the narrative is this intersection between black and brown communities and the LGBT community." Christina Hernández, political and communications strategist in Orlando. 

"A question has been called and people have to choose. Will you uproot this toxic dehumanization of the LGBT community or will you, by action or indifference, nourish hate?" Nadine Smith, Equality Florida CEO
