Assembly Member O'Donnell took to the floor of the Assembly urging everyone to #StoptheHate as he acknowledged the massacre in Orlando, remembered the victims and spoke of the devastating effect of hate on the LGBT community. "Hate is taught. It's carefully taught. You want to stop the hate? How about the next time a politician stands up and blames me for something that goes wrong in the society, you say stop it, or you won't have my support! If you're not willing to do that, then you're not willing to stop the hate. Are you going to do something other than make speeches? Are you going to stop the hate?!" (K-1563)
