For Immediate Release: June 11th, 2016

 OFFICIAL STATEMENT BY JOSHUA DRIVER

 We, at Open For Service, are deeply saddened by the act of terrorism targeting LGBTQ members at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  We hope and pray that no more lives are lost and the families of the victims can begin the healing process.

 We extend our support with the businesses, organizations, churches, and advocates located in the State of Florida as they attempt to offer aide to the family and friends impacted by this tragedy. While this attack was targeted against the LGBTQ community, events like this can happen to anyone, anywhere, and anytime. As the country celebrates pride in the month of June, this serves as reminder that discrimination is still present and carries the threat of aggression.

 We stand behind our mission to continue the development of a worldwide community by encouraging positive dialog to educate individuals, making the world a more culturally sensitive and united place. In the pursuit of offering help to individuals experiencing adversity, we also value personal safely above all else. If you do not feel safe, immediately relocate for protection.

Open For Service will be consulting with our partner organizations such as Salesforce and Geofeedia to leverage our technology to help LGBTQIA people, their allies, and others to find safe spaces and minimize the opportunity for events like this to occur again in the future. Open For Service will also donate stickers to community organizations and businesses that wish to create safe places for LGBT people in their area.

 We ask that our Open For Service community connect with other organizations and resources to help those affected by today’s tragedy.   If you have any questions or need support please contact me at josh@openforservice.org.

 If able, please donate blood at your local donation center.
