The following message will be read at the We Demand Justice! rally on Saturday, July 15th at 2:00p.m. at the Indiana Statehouse South Lawn.
We encourage all members to attend.
Indy Pride sends our support and love to the family of Aaron Bailey and to all in our city who have been touched by this tragic shooting. When someone in our community is killed, we must all mourn together.
It is time for all of us to support our communities of color in this time of need. It is time for the LGBTQ community to say, with one voice, that we are all in this together. That black lives matter. And the life of Aaron Bailey matters.
We at Indy Pride call for an open, transparent, and fair investigation. This is the only way our community will be able to come together and heal.
And to everyone for whom the reality of racism is more than a hashtag: We see you. We stand with you. Your life matters.
