Cara Page, executive director of the Audre Lorde Project identifies as a Black Queer woman, community organizer and cultural worker in Central Brooklyn. This weekend was Brooklyn Pride where the Audre Lorde Project marched with other local community organizations to celebrate and chant against police brutality and for liberation for queer and trans folks of color.

"Then we come home and run into this sadness," Page said of her experience finding out about the massacre at the Orlando gay nightclub that left 49 dead, and 53 injured.
Currently living in Crown Heights, Page previously lived in the South for seventeen years. Upon hearing the news of the shooting, Page immediately reached out to folks who might have been directly affected by the violence. Her next thought was to sure her Muslim friends were okay.
"The immediate islamaphobic retaliation that came was so obviously indicative of this country and where the global standards are of fear of Muslim communities," she says.
...
"Those of us that have been organizing on the ground for racial justice understand the intersectionality of Christian supremacy, White supremacy, and a level of war and genocide that completely obliterates the rights to have religious, faith, spiritual practice connected to our racial, gender, and sexual identities," Page says.
Page ultimately believes that addressing militarization of police is as important as addressing gun violence as a whole. She and other long-time activists have come out against the impulse to reach out to police and state protections for safety against future violence.
...
"We have to go deeper and look at their root causes that even allow this kind of gun violence," Page says.
"Not an anti-gun policy or law but a demilitarization of policing and really understanding war and genocide as, to quote Angela Davis 'an economy of violence' that we are all a part of. Whether or not we are harmed by it or perpetuate it, we are participating and if we are not looking at the root causes that build it through capitalism and white supremacy, then we will not shut this down," she says.
