"The Children's Defense Fund stands with the LGBT community, the friends and families of those who lost their lives or were injured in this senseless massacre in Orlando," said CDF President Marian Wright Edelman. "America needs to confront our gun violence culture even as we mourn these lives. As a country we need to say, not one more life must be lost to gun violence and terrorism and hatred. We need to stand together and say, 'We can and must do better.'"
