LGBTQ Rights & Gun LawReform Rally

$48,983 of $49,400 goal

Raised by 1,652 people in 34 months
**** We have updated the total amount to try to cover the additional EMS bill which has come in at over $7,000 and the budgeted amount was between $3,500-$4,00 and to offset some of the GoFundMe Fees which is over $3,500. I know everyone is fighting so hard to raise the funds for the Rally.  I wanted you all to know why the total was upped slightly.

My name is Jason Hayes and after Orlando, I was unable to sit idle any longer.  Changing my facebook pic wasnt changing anything.  I knew I had to do something to Disarm Hate.

I am organizing a Rally in Washington, DC on August 13th @11am to protest for LGBTQA Equal Rights and Realistic Gun Law reform in this country now.

We cannot wait any longer.  We must stand up and make our voices heard.  Our Politicians have failed us.  Our sense of safety in the most basic of places has been shattered. 

EVERY PENNY donated will be used to cover the costs for the Rally in DC.  A full accounting of donations and expenses paid to organize the Rally will be posted on the wesbite at www.DISARMHATE2016.com. We need your help now.

Any funds we are blessed to have left over at the end of the Rally will be donated to one or several 501c3 organizations associated with LGBTQ Rights & Gun Violence Prevention.

Please donate now by clicking the red button on the right and then share the message.

Stand with us in Washington, DC on August 13th.

Thank you
Sincerely
Jason Hayes

I AM WORKING SO HARD WITH THE AMAZING TEAM WHO HAS VOLUNTEERED TO HELP ME PULL THIS RALLY TOGETHER IN RECORD TIME!!!

WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR DONATIONS IF POSSIBLE. THE FEES DEDUCTED BY GOFUNDME AND WEPAY ARE 7.9% SO THAT MEANS THEY TAKE JUST OVER $3,500 AND THE EMS BILL JUST CAME IN AT MORE THAN DOUBLE THE BUDGETED AMOUNT.

WE ARE MAKING HISTORY AND DISARM HATE 2016 WILL BE THE CATALYST FOR CHANGE!


STAND TALL AND PROUD! YOU HELPED MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!!!

And you hope to accomplish what exactly? You mention what happened in Orlando, but if any of them had and knew how to use a gun maybe there wouldnt of been so many deaths. So if anything more people should have and know how to use guns.

Just wanted to say, I wish the people teLling you to "educate yourself" would educate THEMselves and learn what a crazy quilt patchwork of laws there are in this country that govern gun ownership, purchasing, storage, carry, etc. We need to do much more than "enforce existing laws" because the laws are often somewhere between woefully inadequate and non-existent. See you on the 13th -- what an AWESOME thing you're doing!!

Dear Jason, I live in the Orlando area and am a gun owner. Please educate yourself on the gun community. There are millions of us. MOST of us (98%) are hard working and responsible gun owners. There are OVER 1000 gun laws on the books. We do NOT need new ones, we need to ENFORCE the ones that we have and figure out how to take guns away from criminals!
