About Pride Fund to End Gun Violence
In the wake of the shooting massacre at the Pulse nightclub, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the LGBTQ community was motivated to take action to prevent future gun tragedies. Pride Fund was created and exists to create a safer future for generations to come. We fight for laws that make our communities safer from guns. We fight for policies that protect LGBTQ individuals from discrimination and violence. We support candidates for office who do the same.
