Equality Illinois CEO Brian C. Johnson writes in the Chicago Sun-Times that the Orlando “victims deserve that we act quickly to change the world in which they were murdered.”
Johnson said that three critical actions must be taken following the attack on the Pulse nightclub:
1. Demand that our leaders recognize that it was an attack on the LGBT community.
2. Come together to denounce all forms of hate, especially the current hate targeted at the Muslim American community
3. Be out and proud.
