Mayor Muriel Bowser named June 12 as "Orlando United Day" in D.C. in honor of the 49 shooting victims of the Pulse nightclub.
June 12 marks exactly one year since the 2016 attack by Omar Mateen in Orlando that left 49 dead and 53 others injured.
Mayor Bowser says that she and the residents of D.C. are standing with Orlando to honor those who lost their lives.
Mayor Bowser tweeted the official document acknowledging "Orlando United Day."
She released the following statement on Saturday:
"We remember the 49 beautiful souls who were taken from us far too soon one year ago as they came together to enjoy a night of dancing, camaraderie, and pride, with friends at the Pulse NIghtclub."
Churches services are being held in Orlando on Monday in remembrance of the victims.
