06/12/2016 - Denver, CO
It is with a heavy heart and profound sadness that I make this statement on behalf of the Democratic Party of Denver, regarding the tragic events in Orlando, Florida.
Our hearts go out to the victims, friends, and families who experienced loss, trauma, and injury at Pulse nightclub. As Denver County residents, we are fortunate to have Democratic leaders who have fought tirelessly for equal rights for all Coloradans, and we are also reminded that not all U.S. cities, counties, and states have leadership with this same focus. We have so much more work to do, with regards to our safety, promoting tolerance, and ending hatred, and I sincerely appreciate your support of all efforts to keep freedom, safety, and respect a part of everyone's life.
A Statement from Anne Murdaugh, Chair of the Democratic Party of Denver
