Millions Raised For Pulse Victims

By Charlotte Robinson, June 24, 2016
Equality Florida's fundraising efforts for the victims' families & survivors of the Pulse Nightclub Shooting have raised over 6 million dollars. The vast majority was from a GoFundMe campaign that has drawn more than 114,000 contributors from across the world & all facets of society as well as pledges from corporate sponsors & grassroots fundraising efforts locally & globally. In working with their partners at the National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC) they are expediting the process of fund disbursement to ensure there is no gap in the safety net for these families. They expect funds to be dispersed as quickly as eight weeks via the NCVC's National Compassion Fund. It is imperative that all victims' families & survivors call NCVC's Victim Hotline or visit VictimConnect.org so that victims’ families & survivors have access to these critical financial resources. The NCVC will work with partners to quickly verify their identity, identify their expenses & process disbursements. Undocumented victims’ families & survivors qualify for these financial resources & as victims of crime, are protected. In a world where marriage equality only recently became a possibility & domestic partnership is not widely available, it is Equality Florida's top priority to ensure they address the unique needs of the LGBTQ & Latino/a communities impacted from the Pulse Nightclub Shooting.
