Pride Fund to End Gun Violence, an LGBTQ organization created after the Pulse shooting to advocate gun policy reform, has endorsed Debbie Mucarsel-Powell for the 2018 election.
“Debbie Mucarsel-Powell has such an amazing opportunity to turn the tide in one of the closest races in the country, while fighting for the safety of Americans and Floridians,” said Jason Lindsay, Executive Director of Pride Fund to End Gun Violence. “After losing her father to gun violence, Debbie has been a fierce advocate for common sense gun regulations in this country.
“She has experienced the effects of lax gun policy and knows how personally devastating gun violence is. Debbie will be an essential voice in Congress in the fight for common sense gun reform,” Lindsay said.
Pride Fund to End Gun Violence (“Pride Fund”) is the only national LGBTQ political organization focused solely on gun violence prevention.
Pride Fund was founded by Jason Lindsay, a gay Iraq War veteran, in the days following the June 2016 mass shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. When it occurred, the Pulse nightclub shooting was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
Pride Fund supports sensible gun policy reforms while championing LGBTQ safety and equality by advocating for legislation and supporting candidates at the state and federal levels.
