Candlelight Vigil For Victims of Orlando Massacre

Early on the morning of Sunday, June 12, 2016, a gunman killed over 50 people and left scores of others critically injured. It is a painful reminder of the hate and bias that continues to plague our country. Our hearts and minds are joined with all the family, friends and loved ones who are mourning.

Please join the LGBT Network, friends, and neighbors at the Center at Bay Shore (34 Park Ave., Bay Shore, NY 11706) at 7 p.m. on Monday June 13, to stand in solidarity with the communities in Orlando, and remember the lives lost to such senseless violence.

The LGBT Network will have grief counselors available at its Community Centers in Woodbury (The Center at Woodbury, 20 Crossways Park Dr. N., Suite 110, Woodbury, NY 11797), Bay Shore and Sag Harbor (The Hamptons GLBT Center, Old Whaler’s Church, 44 Union Street, Sag Harbor, NY 11963).

If you need to talk please call 631-665-2300 or 516-323-0011. #WeAreOrlando
