A Statement From Mayor Victoria Woodards on Colorado Springs Tragedy

TACOMA, Wash. -- "Over the weekend, a horrific incident resulting in the death of five people and 19 injured at a Colorado Springs LGBTQIA+ nightclub reached national news. Club Q has been a safe haven for Colorado Springs' LGBTQIA+ community, and this incident has had rippling impacts in our own community.

Today, I have asked that the City of Tacoma raise the Progress Flag to half-mast over the Tacoma Municipal building to recognize and honor the lives cut short, and let our local LGBTQIA+ community know they have our support.”
