The recent shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs, which took the lives of many LGBTQ+ individuals, is sadly not an isolated incident and Pittsburgh is not exempt from anti-LGBTQ+ violence. There is so much more work to be done to ensure that every single member in our community is empowered to live their life free of violence, grief, and harm from racism, homophobia, and transphobia.
The PLDIC community stands in solidarity with all who have been impacted by these events, and we grieve with our family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues. As we come together in support of one another, we remain steadfast in our commitment to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal community and the city in an effort to help overcome these violent and unlawful actions.
In support of our LGBTQ+ community, we will be hosting a time for the PLDIC community to come together and process their feelings and find some solace in a supportive environment. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Ena and we will provide you with more information about when and where we will gather.
Additionally, you can show your support for the LGBTQ+ community by attending Pride Night at the Pens on Monday, December 12.
The PLDIC will also provide additional resources to our community in the coming weeks.
