Congress Passes Bill To Designate Pulse Nightclub As National Memorial

National Pulse Memorial

Nearly five years after the horrific mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Congress has passed legislation designating the site as a national memorial to the victims.

The bill, which President Joe Biden is expected to sign, passed in the Senate earlier this week and in the House last month. It designates the National Pulse Memorial at 1912 South Orange Avenue in Orlando.

Five years ago this Saturday, Omar Mateen entered the gay nightclub and shot and killed 49 people ― many of whom identified as LGBTQ ― and injured dozens more. At the time, it was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. (The following year, a mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas became the nation’s deadliest yet, with 58 people dead.)
