As we previously reported, New York City’s City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn has called on fellow New Yorkers to join her this Wednesday, August 5th in remembering victims of the shooting at the Tel Aviv Gay and Lesbian Association. Vigils are now also scheduled for Boston and Los Angeles. Please join in a vigil close to you—or pause to reflect today - August 5th - as we mourn for the victims, pray for the injured, and express our outrage at the attacks at the Tel Aviv LGBT youth center.
