A privately-led Memorial Task Force will begin meeting in the near future, spearheaded by Pulse Nightclub owner, Barbara Poma.
Poma has been touring other memorials across the country since the shootings occurred last year, accompanied by locally-grown, but internationally-renowned public artist, JEFRE (Facebook), getting inspiration for one she is hoping to install on her property in Sodo. See below photo via JEFRE’s Instagram page, @jefre_miami.
The memorial will be designed with input gathered by Poma and her advisory council of JEFRE, Mayra Alvear, mother of Amanda Alvear, and Pam Shwartz, of Orange County Regional History Center, as well as a larger memorial task force comprised of victims’ families, survivors, and involved community members.
