Stand With Orlando: Find a Vigil Near You

by Carolyn Simon June 13, 2016

In addition to looking for ways to help in the aftermath of the Orlando shooting, people across the nation and the world are looking for opportunities to come together as a community and support each other.

The website has compiled a list of many events that are happening this evening and in the days ahead. Scroll down the homepage to find an event near you.

The site also includes a link to the GoFundMe page that has been set up to help the victims.

There have already been dozens of impromptu vigils in cities from San Francisco to Dallas, Vancouver to Paris.

LGBTQ allies came together to light candles, sing songs, exchange hugs, and stand in solidarity with Orlando.

These have mainly been peaceful events, but at one vigil in Austin, Texas, some individuals shouted insults at the attendees. The attendees responded by chanting “love” at the individuals.

HRC Board of Directors member Meghan Stabler said hate and terror must not prevent us from living our authentic lives.

“Being out is an act of success, an act of love, and an act of bravery,” Stabler said.
