We invite your organization to partner in a nationwide commemoration of the Pulse massacre that calls on individuals and organizations to honor those killed by taking action to uproot the anti-LGBTQ animus that feeds bullying, harassment, discrimination, and violence.
More than 850 events sprang up around the country in the immediate aftermath of Pulse and we will be inviting those organizers to renew their commitment to creating lasting change.
It is our hope that all organizations and individuals who seek to acknowledge the one year mark will embrace the hashtag and the call to #HonorThemWithAction.
We see this as a campaign that the community owns and that organizations can shape in the way that works best for each group. Some may focus on a single day, others a week, some the full month of June.
We hope this campaign:
- Inspires people to be innovative and bold
- Challenges leaders of different faiths to speak out against anti-LGBTQ violence
- Encourages you to talk to your school superintendent about anti-bullying programs in the schools
- Encourages you to directly engage elected leaders
- Host an LGBTQ-inclusive community dialogue on the dramatic spike in hate violence
We hope it also inspires more people to donate and give time to support the work you are doing to make the world a safer place for LGBTQ people.
Sign on to partner with us to #HonorThemWithAction, the national campaign to commemorate the Pulse massacre. Read more about the #HonorThemWithAction campaign here.
Use the hashtag #HonorThemWithAction on social media to share organization or individual stories to raise awareness about the work you are doing to uproot anti-LGBTQ bias and bigotry.
We want to encourage actions large and small that make a difference. Examples:
- “I finally came out to my Aunt. #HonorThemWithAction”
- “I asked my company to adopt a nondiscrimination policy. #HonorThemWithAction”
- “I volunteered with a group that works to end school bullying. #HonorThemWithAction”
