Orlando: At the Intersections of Tragedy

Redmond

Description

Join us for a community forum to share, process, and heal. As details of Orlando massacre unfolded, so did varying layers of complexity. We learned that it took place at a popular Gay nightclub, putting the LGBTQ community on alert that a place of refuge was attacked. It occurred on "Latino Night" and later many of the victims' names were notably of Latinx descent. In the aftermath of this tragedy, Muslim communities anticipated that they would all be labeled as terrorists. In addition to mourning and coping from another act of violence, various communities are grappling with issues of safety based on identity. Facilitated by Luzviminda "Lulu" Carpenter, Community Advocate and Radio Host of #LuluNation + Crew every Tuesday 7-9pm on hollowearthradio.org. Registration not required.
