June 12, 2016

Statement from Presente.org’s Managing Director, Matt Nelson:

"What happened in Orlando was incredibly tragic and heartbreaking. Our hearts are heavy for all of those who have been impacted by the horrific mass shooting in ‪#‎Orlando‬, Florida at ‪#‎PulseNightclub‬. We know that this mass shooting will have a particularly devastating impact on our Latinx LGBTQ community across the country. We recommit ourselves to ending the culture of hate, homophobia, racism and Islamophobia — the same culture of hate and bigotry that fuels such out of control killing and violence."
