Florida Democratic Party Commemorates 5 Years Since the Pulse Shooting  

FLORIDA- [Yesterday marked] 5 years since the devastating shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando that took 49 innocent lives. In remembrance, Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz released the following statement.  

“Five years ago at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, 49 innocent lives were cut off at their prime. Today we mourn and remember those who were killed that awful day and hold their loved ones, survivors, the Orlando community, and the entire Florida LGBTQ+ community in our hearts. Those killed were victims of hatred, homophobia, and the epidemic of gun violence in our country. They should be alive today, and it is our duty to do more than just remember.  

“We must recommit to honor them with action by fighting to end hate and homophobia, and by pushing for common sense gun reforms. Our leaders need to offer real change instead of just thoughts and prayers, and we at the Florida Democratic Party will not rest until they do.”

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
