Orlando & Brooklyn - Showing Local Help & Support

The Brooklyn Paper reports today on the tragic death of Bed-Stuy resident Enrique Rios, who was killed in the mass-shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub.  Rios' family are raising money to bring his body home from Florida, and to help pay for funeral expenses.  You can support the family's efforts here. The paper also announces that Slope bar Excelsior (563 Fifth) will be holding a candlelight vigil for Orlando victims tonight, at 8:00 pm.

The Brooklyn Community Pride Center, in Downtown Brooklyn, is offering support for those who need help in dealing with the Orlando tragedy .  More info & links here.
