Standing Together

SEIU Healthcare is united in shock and horror at the brutal slaying at the Pulse nightclub is Orlando. We stand with our sisters and brothers in the LGBTIQ community at this tragic time and renew our commitment to fighting bigotry in all its forms.

“We are shocked and dismayed by this horrific act of violence,” said Sharleen Stewart, President of SEIU Healthcare. “We send our best wishes and condolences to the families of the dead and injured.”

The fight against bigotry includes of course, standing with our Muslim sisters and brothers against false stereotyping and Islamophobia. SEIU Healthcare refuses to permit the acts of individuals to tarnish entire communities.

“An attack on innocent people anywhere is an attack on us all,” said Sebastian Trujillo, SEIU Healthcare’s LGTBIQ executive board member. “We will not give in to terror or fear.”
