The Pulse Shootings, One Year Later

One year after the Pulse nightclub shootings, survivors, activists, and advocates reflect on how they turned tragedy into action following the shooting, and how to protect all Americans from gun violence and discrimination.

On June 12, 2016, a lone gunman entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and started shooting. The attack, which killed 49 people, was the worst mass shooting in American history, and the worst crime against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans ever committed. One year later, survivors, activists, and advocates reflect on how they turned tragedy into action following the shooting, and how to protect all Americans from gun violence and discrimination.
