AARP Statement on Club Q Shooting

Posted on 11/21/22

AARP mourns with the families and friends of the Club Q shooting in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The LGBTQ+ community deserves to feel safe and live their lives without fear of violence. We would be remiss in not recognizing the additional lives that were lost this year to violence in the transgender community. Their names are not always known, but they will never be forgotten.

AARP will continue to defend the rights of all Americans, foster positive social change and deliver a future where people 50-plus can choose how they live and age.
