06.17.16Open Letter: Healing from Hate
With the horrific tragedy that occurred in Orlando, Florida on the morning of June 12th, 2016, the PROJECT EDQUITY family is in mourning over the lives lost, and stand in solidarity with all communities impacted by hate. We express our condolences to the loved ones of those killed by senseless violence, and to those everywhere who continue to suffer at the hands of hate.
History has taught us how tremendously acts of hate can impact entire groups, communities, and nations. But, acts of hate have also brought together communities in some of the most powerful ways- in the spirit of love. Healing from Orlando tragedy won’t be easy. The sense of sadness and trauma we feel is real. But healing is possible. In the face of sadness and adversity, we will rise. We will support one another through genuine displays of empathy and sensitivity. We will shed light on past and enduring injustices and work together to end them. We will advocate for physically and emotionally safe spaces that promote understanding, engagement, and community-building. We will take care of ourselves and those around us, familiar or not. We will be stronger, much stronger, than hate. As individuals, as communities, as a nation, we will heal.
Orlando, our hearts are with you.
