On Saturday, we joined our friends to march in the Pride Portland! parade. In the wake of the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting, we marched in solidarity with the LGBTQ community, to call for equal rights for all people and to honor the lives of those lost. Together, we will build a world in which all people can live and love openly and free from discrimination.

Our colleague at the ACLU of Florida, Baylor Johnson, wrote a beautiful piece called "The Pulse shooting and the meaning of 'home.'" I encourage you to give it a read.
