This Saturday and Sunday we will be at Seattle Pride. There will be an army of us with clipboards. So, come find us and sign I-873. We've got beads, and you can never have too many of those at Pride.
Pride seems different this year than it has in years past. We are all still feeling Orlando. Our hearts as an organization and community are with the people of Orlando, the victims, and the families affected. That incident was a reminder once again that we have a lot of work to do for the LGBTQ community. The LGBTQ community is also disproportionately affected by police brutality. I-873 is an important step in the right direction for all minority communities who are more vulnerable because they are minorities.
This year more than ever, solidarity is a big deal. It's a time for the community to come together. Pride is always a good time. This year that good time feels very important.
