In response to the nation’s worst mass shooting in history & stalled efforts in Congress to implement gun reform members of the LGBTQ community announced the formation of the Pride Fund to End Gun Violence (Pride Fund). This political action committee (PAC) will support federal candidates who will act on sensible gun policy reforms & champion LGBTQ equality. In the first few days of fundraising the organization has raised nearly $20,000. Pride Fund plans to have a strong impact in November & is well on its way to raising its initial goal of $500,000 for this election cycle. Jason Lindsay, Pride Fund Founder & Executive Director stated, “The Orlando massacre was yet another senseless act of gun violence in America & the LGBTQ community & our allies are united in the call for action on commonsense gun reforms. We are tired of Congress’ inaction, so we are adding the strength & organization of the LGBTQ community to help end gun violence. This is a call-to-action for all Americans to stand up & take political action to end gun violence. Pride Fund gives the LGBTQ community & its allies a strong, concentrated voice to fight back against politicians who are unwilling to act on this important issue. While it will take strong citizen action, fundraising & political muscle to take on the robust financial power of the gun lobby – the LGBTQ community, with the help of its allies, has succeeded before & we plan to do so again.” Lindsay is a seasoned political operative with 12 years of experience working in politics, government & campaigns. He also served for 14 years in the U.S. Army Reserve & was deployed to Iraq in 2003.
