Statement on Mass Shooting in Orlando

Today Supervisor Wiener released the following statement on the mass shooting in Orlando:

“Today we mourn for the dozens of people murdered in cold blood due to extreme, violent hatred against the LGBT community. We remember and honor those who perished and those who survived. We send prayers to their family. Let’s also recommit to battling and defeating the homophobia and transphobia in this country and around the world that directly leads to this kind of violence. Too many political and religious leaders continue to attack the LGBT community and define us as less than fully part of society. That has to stop. We mourn today. And then we fight. We will win, and love will conquer hate.”
