We Remember - In the wake of the Orlando attack, we show our solidarity - lit candles and stones

OneJax Statement of Solidarity

In the wake of the Orlando attack upon the LGBT community, we show our solidarity with those who suffer from this or any act of hatred, we stand together for peace and we commit to embrace the opportunity to comfort and strengthen one another by building a culture of peace and respect in Jacksonville.

We call upon our better nature to remind us that the only divide is between those who hate and those who refuse to hate. We will not return hate with hate but rather confront hate with love. We must safeguard America's soul by refusing to sanction bigotry against others simply because of whom they love or how they pray.
