Call-to-action from from Cleve Jones, LGBT civil rights activist and founder of
the AIDS Memorial Quilt:
“Last Friday, as millions of LGBT people and their allies were celebrating Pride, something awful happened in Portland, Texas.
“We need to respond publicly to this tragedy.
“Whoever shot Mary Kristene Chapa and Mollie Judith Olgin, whatever the motive, regardless of where it happened, two beautiful girls were shot and one was killed. We need to honor the memory of Mollie and pray for the recovery of Mary.
“…Mary and Mollie loved each other. Now we need to show our love for them and their families and friends.
Please join this event and encourage friends to organize vigils in their home towns. Please share this event!
