One year after the mass shooting of 49 people in Pulse nightclub, we are still mourning. We grieve with friends and family who continue to feel the absences of loved ones, and those affected by the large ripples of one of the deadliest mass shootings in recent memory. Details of the shooting at the Orlando LGBTQ nightclub highlighted the many ways that borders, prisons, and other forms of racial and gender violence harm those who experience both and more. This only magnifies the loss because in many ways their joy and their lives were already testament to the resilience of our communities. The shooting caused us to think quickly and deeply about who our people are and how we want to heal and build power with them.
