6 Month Pulse, OUAC Agreement, OneOrlando and Ceremony tonight
Monday, December 12, 2016 marked 6 months since the darkest day in our city’s history.
Mayor Buddy Dyer recognized Commissioner Sheehan who is a Finalist for the Orlando Sentinel’s Central Floridian of the Year, nominated by members of our community because of her tireless efforts in helping lead our community through this tragic event and bring us together.
Since that time, our community has continued to work together to support the victims and their families in a variety of ways and we recognize the need for services and assistance will continue in the weeks, months and even years ahead.
To further assist our victim’s families, survivors and our community, Council voted on a long-term contract with United Way to manage the daily operations of the OUAC.
Mayor Dyer thanked all of the OUAC staff and victim advocates, for the important work they do every day and helping to ensure the needs of our survivors and victims’ families are met.
To further honor the 49 victims, families and survivors of the Pulse Orlando nightclub tragedy, Mayor Dyer invited everyone to join him Monday, December 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the History Center for a ceremony to honor them.
