About onePULSE Foundation
On June 12, 2016, 49 angels sought the joy, love and acceptance of Pulse Nightclub. Instead, they found hatred. And they never came home. They were gay. They were straight. Latin, black, white. Mothers. Brothers. Sisters. Daughters. Sons. Lost forever. Targeted for their association. Attacked for their acceptance. Silenced for their love. And murdered because they simply chose to be themselves.In the aftermath of one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern American history, our community came together to prove that love will overcome fear and hatred. Under this banner, the onePULSE Foundation was created to memorialize this tragedy and ensure Pulse’s legacy of love, acceptance and hope was never lost.
