CSWA Response to Orlando Tragedy

Dear CSWA Members, 

It is hard to accept the massacre of LGBTQ people in Orlando and the hate it represents.   

There have been some good summaries of how to think about it, including one by Glenda Russell (attached).  A PDF version is available online at Please feel free to share with others.

"Give an Hour" is making the thousands of therapists who give an hour of treatment to veterans available to the Orlando LGBT community - to join go to .  To read their press release, go to  .  

We can never stop insisting on the right of everyone to live their lives regardless of color, sexual orientation, gender or any identity that has been demonized. Please re-read the CSWA Statement on Discrimination (attached).  The hate being legalized against trans people in the states mentioned is a contributing factor to the terrible loss in Orlando.  Speak out against all forms of hate."
