Today’s a day of remembrance here in Orlando over the Pulse mass shootings. There are several articles and tributes that are more articulate than anything I can say about it, like these ones below:

What I’m going to provide instead are some suggestions of how you can also remember the Orlando 49:

  1. Vote for political candidates who believe in common sense gun control across local, state, and national elections (who also have a chance of winning).
  2. Donate time and/or money to a local LGBTQIA organization. I donate somewhat regularly to the Zebra Coalition. This is an organization that provides support and resources to LGBTQIA youth (13-24). These are young people who are often at the most risk of being made homeless or subjected to violence by family members who disagree with who their children love.
  3. Keep fighting for what you believe in.
