Community Response to Tragedy

Event Navigation

After horror struck Orlando on the morning of June 12, 2016 it took monumental effort for a grief-stricken community -for people- to come together and address the needs of everyone affected, specially of those directly impacted. Long-established leaders as well as emerging ones found themselves at the forefront of a massive task: to build up this once colorful and joyful community. A haven for LGBTQ+ people had been stolen and the LGBTQ+ Latinx community suffered a devastating loss. Layers upon layers of challenges, from language barriers to immigration status, came to surface. To take care of all those involved was not and it still isn’t an easy mission. However, in the strength and resiliency that characterizes a community with a long record of fighting oppression and hatred, a united front was there to pick up the pieces and guide the process to becoming whole again. Join us for a special Diálogo session with Representative Carlos Guillermo SmithTerry DeCarloRoxy Santiago and Christopher J. Cuevas as they share the paths they’ve taken to respond to tragedy, to honor those lost and to continue fighting for the community
