response to the nation’s worst mass shooting in history and stalled efforts in
Congress to implement gun reform, members of the LGBTQ community have announced
the formation of the Pride Fund to End Gun Violence (Pride
political action committee (PAC) will support federal candidates who will act
on sensible gun policy reforms and champion LGBTQ equality.
The Orlando massacre
was yet another senseless act of gun violence in America and the LGBTQ
community and our allies are united in the call for action on commonsense gun
reforms. We are tired of Congress’ inaction, so we are adding the strength and
organization of the LGBTQ community to help end gun violence.
Fund seeks grassroots engagement and donations that will allow our community to
meet its goals. Each year, the gun lobby spends tens of millions of dollars to
influence Congressional elections and legislative action. Pride Fund gives our
community a unique voice to fight back by supporting candidates who champion
diversity, equality, and – most of all – sensible gun reforms.
Fund plans to have a strong impact in November and is well on its way to raising
its initial goal of $500,000 for this election cycle.
Your donation will help us directly support
political candidates and also with the essential costs of expanding this
campaign, such as improving our technology to mobilize supporters and raise
funds for political candidates. We also need to find a permanent hub of
operations in DC and other major cities for our volunteers and supporters to
collaborate and organize. Please consider supporting our campaign.
