Attend a Candlelight Vigil for Orlando Victims
The Department of Public Policy is sponsoring a candlelight vigil to honor and remember the victims of the tragic weekend shooting in Orlando. The vigil will take place today (Wednesday, June 15) at Swinney Park, 1600 W. Jefferson Boulevard, starting at 8:45 p.m.

"We want to show the city of Orlando and all of the survivors of the mass shooting on June 12 that the people of Fort Wayne support them," said Rachel Rayburn, assistant professor of public policy and vigil organizer. "This is our opportunity to stand against the hatred and discrimination that affects the LGBTQ community."

The event is free and all community members are invited. Those who wish to attend are encouraged to bring candles, red plastic cups, and/or flowers. For more information, contact Rachel Rayburn at 260-481-6532 or
