by DGO Web Administrator

To show support for the victims and survivors of the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, the Four Corners Alliance for Diversity will be holding a candlelight vigil on Tuesday June 14 at 8:30 p.m. at Rotary Park in Durango. There will also be a moment of silence at the Animas City Theatre on Wednesday, June 22 at 7:30 p.m., and a memorial tribute at Buckley Park on Saturday June 25 at 3 p.m.

Durango Pride released the following statement on their Facebook page: “The amount of violence and hate our community faces is ridiculous but we are a strong, resilient people that will never stop fighting for equality in the hope that we can create a better world. We are with you in spirit Florida.”

On Sunday, an American-born man killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. to date, as well as the worst terror attack in the U.S. since 9/11. The gunman, who had pledged allegiance to ISIS, additionally wounded at least 53.
