People across the country continue to grieve over the tremendous loss of life that occurred on June 12, when a gunman attacked an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando, leaving 49 dead and more than 50 injured, nearly all LGBTQ, Latino/a, and young. This is the worst mass shooting in the U.S. since the Wounded Knee Massacre in 1890. This was a violent attack against the LGBTQ community, the Latino/Hispanic community, the Orlando community and our nation.
For funders concerned about this tragedy and how to best respond, please join us for a national teleconference. On the call we’ll get the latest updates from Florida’s philanthropic community to learn about the current needs, how local philanthropy is responding and the type of help that is needed now and in future; share some lessons learned by funders from other mass shootings; and explore how philanthropy can play a role right now and down the road.
This will be the first of three teleconferences we plan to offer in the coming weeks. In a second teleconference we’ll hear from community groups working on the front lines in Orlando and in a third teleconference we'll focus on longer-terms needs and responses.
