You've probably seen the devastating news out of #Orlando. The deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history happened where our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer family members go to be together - to be out and proud.
We often don't know what to do in times of crisis and devastation, and nothing we can do will ever erase the horror and hate that has been inflicted on the victims and families in Orlando, and our LGBTQ community at-large. But, we can come together and show the world that we will not succumb to fear and violence.
Equality New Mexico is working with our community on several vigils throughout the state to show our support and love for our family in Florida.

Yours in Equality,
Amber Royster, Executive Director
