A year ago this week the NGLCC community was heartbroken by a senseless attack on our community at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. We mourned, and still mourn, for those taken and offer love and support to the survivors and their families still in need of healing. Our national chamber network continues to stand firmly in support of our local affiliate chamber, MBA Orlando, as they continue to work with other Central Florida based LGBT organizations to keep our community safe and connected.
