In the wake of the horrific violence in Orlando, our hearts are broken, and our support is strong for our LGBTQ, Latino, and Muslim American communities and all men and women of peace and good will. Woman Within International continues to extend our support and prayers to the LGBTQ community, the Latino community, and the Muslim community during this time of recovery and healing from this tragic event.
We grieve with our brothers and sisters and for all who have been affected by this tragedy. We pray for the victims, their families and all who have been affected. We dedicate ourselves anew to our commitment to healing and compassion.
Woman Within International is an organization of the heart. We believe that the world can be changed through love, inclusion, and understanding. We honor our differences and our shared humanity. We honor the rights of all people to live in peace, free from violence and fear.May we open our hearts with love and compassion toward those who appear different from ourselves so the hate and violence can end. May the healing begin and continue for generations to come.
If you’re needing support, reach out to the community or see this list of resources put together by the University of Maryland for support around this tragic event.
