Join the Three Wise Guys of Friends Talking Faith – Rev. Bryan Fulwider, Imam Muhammad Musri and Rabbi Steven Engel – at 90.7 WMFE’s studio at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 7, for the next 90.7 WMFE Speaker Series event, “Orlando, One Year Later,” talking about the how the community has changed since the Pulse nightclub shooting.
You’re invited to join us early, at 6 p.m., for light refreshments.
Joining the Wise Guys on stage:
State Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, a Democrat and the first openly gay Latino to serve in the Florida Legislature. Update: Rep. Smith is unable to join us for this event. Taking his place is Orlando Commissioner Patty Sheehan: “As a member of the Orlando City Council since 2000, she’s been close to the heartbeat of her neighbors and the Orlando community — but never more than after the killing of 49 people at Pulse, a nightclub in her district. Her focus on consoling the pain of those grieving — and her role as a champion against hate — elevated her as a symbol of healing for the LGBT community, as a leader beyond political and gender boundaries.” — Orlando Sentinel
90.7 WMFE reporter Crystal Chavez will talk about the shooting’s impact on the Latino community and her forthcoming Spanish-language podcast on the subject, Orlando Un Año Después.
They will discuss religious and societal issues driven by local and national political conversations, and they’ll reflect on the LGBTQ+ issues facing the religious community. “Pulse is right in front of us all the time,” Fulwider said. “What does it mean in terms of our unfinished work in community?”
