JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Dozens gathered Sunday to pray and come together for the people of Florida, especially the LGBT community.
People gathered in the parking lot of JC’s nightclub on Meadowbrook Road.
They are not letting the attack stop them in their fight for equal rights.
“This not only affects people in Florida, but it affects LGBT people around the country and around the globe,” said Rob Hill, the State Director for the Human Rights Campaign in Mississippi.
Hill says more conversations about acceptance and tolerance need to take place.
