ETBy Lauren FoxPublished August 21:15:42The Orlando nightclub shooting on June 12 left 49 people dead and more than 500 wounded, including at least one of the suspected shooters, among more than 50 fatalities from the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
It was the deadliest shooting in modern U.P. history and the deadliest day of mass shootings in U: history.
Since then, several major organizations have come out against President Donald Trump’s executive order banning people from certain countries and groups from entering the U.A.E. and the U: military.
Some have also said the ban is discriminatory, that it’s not inclusive of all people, and that the U.: military’s role in U.: life, security and the economy is in question.
Now, a group of gay and lesbian organizations have issued a joint statement to defend LGBT rights.
They’re asking supporters to read the statement carefully and then email them to tell them why they think it’s important to continue the fight for LGBT rights, and to call their lawmakers in favor of LGBT rights in their state.
The LGBT group, Equality Florida, said the statement, which is available on the group’s website, should be shared widely by gay and lesbians who want to keep the fight against anti-LGBT prejudice alive.
“The LGBT community has been left out of the current discussions, despite the fact that many of us are still active in the movement to end the ban on gays and lesbians from entering or returning to the U., including in our state,” the statement reads.
“The ban is not inclusive to LGBT people, but it is discriminatory and anti-American, and we must continue to fight it.”
The LGBT statement says that while the ban has had a devastating effect on LGBT people in the U.’s military, it has also been devastating to our economy and society.
The statement notes that, since the Orlando shooting, the number of people killed by anti-gay violence has doubled.
It also points to the fact there are still more than 1.4 million people in federal prison, including those who were incarcerated for anti-Gay hate crimes, and the federal government spends nearly $2 trillion annually on anti-homosexual programs.
The Equality Florida statement also calls for more support for LGBT people through the Department of Justice and the Department in the military, which the group says has not fully funded LGBTQ equality initiatives.
“We must fight the ban through legal means, including through our local and state government and in our local communities, and not through any other political means,” the group wrote.
“This includes making sure the military has all the resources it needs to ensure equality and inclusion in the armed forces.”
For now, however, the Equality Florida group said it is encouraging people to sign up for the Equality Fla.
email list, which has more than 7,500 members, to get updates on upcoming LGBT equality issues.
