In the aftermath of the Pulse tragedy in 2016, organizations came together to meet the needs of our traumatized community. This informal partnership grew into the One Orlando Alliance, a coalition of diverse organizations honoring the memory of the lives taken and all those affected at Pulse by serving and strengthening the LGBTQ+ community. Through a multi-sector network of partnerships, One Orlando Alliance is transforming Central Florida into a community where all LGBTQ+ people can belong and thrive.
On June 12, 2016, Orlando experienced one of the worst mass shootings in American history.
All told, 49 lives were taken, 68 were injured and countless individuals were impacted by the tragedy at Pulse nightclub. Most of those victimized identified as LGBTQ+, Latinx and/or Black/African-American.OUR MISSION
