Please join us in mobilizing financial support of our LGBTQ Latinx Community members. We ask for your support in two ways: supporting the recovery of a Latinx victim with North Carolina ties and supporting services at the Center that serve the Latinx community.
We have learned of at least one victim of the Pulse Nightclub attack in Orlando who has North Carolina ties. Javier Nava, is currently hospitalized in Orlando and is recovering from his injuries. Javier is blessed to have many friends from North Carolina to Texas to Florida praying for his speedy recovery. However, he will need tangible financial help since he cannot work right now. Like many in the hospitality industry he relies on tip income. He and his family need support to get by. Over the coming days we will be reaching out to grassroots organizations and community members with ties in Orlando to find other individuals that your support can have an impact today! Please click here to make a one-time donation to our #OrlandoVictimFund. The first $2,000 will be earmarked for Javier. For all additional monies raised in excess we will work with The Bar to select Orlando recipients in need of direct support.
If you would like to earmark a donation specifically for the support of the Center’s Latinx initiatives and services, please click below.
