Target: Local leaders
Goal: Raise awareness of anti-gay violence.
32-year-old Mark Carson was walking down a street in New York City one evening when a man came up to him and his friends, yelled “f—ot” and “queer,” and shot him in the head.
Mark’s horrific death was part of a string of anti-LGBT violence in New York City.
Hate crimes are sadly nothing new, but we can let the mayors of every major U.S. city and all 50 governors know how we’re all feeling right now: horror, outrage, and a determination that love will conquer hate even in a moment as awful as this one.
