Orlando United Day
The Central Florida community remains Orlando United after the tragic Pulse Orlando nightclub shooting on June 12, 2016, when a gunman killed 49 people and injured 68 others. It is considered the second deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman and the deadliest incident of violence against the LGBTQ community in modern U.S. history.
The City of Orlando and Orange County Government, in collaboration with the onePulse Foundation, have jointly designated June 12, as “Orlando United Day – A Day of Love and Kindness.” June 12 will be dedicated to honoring the memory of the 49 innocent Pulse victims, supporting survivors and recognizing the compassion and love that was displayed by the Central Florida community following the tragedy.
