Across the country, millions of hearts beat with El Paso. El Paso is a community that straddles borders and cultures, a symbol of safety and inclusion for people from around the world, citizens and non-citizens alike. This is El Paso’s strength. Nothing will change that. Today, we must reaffirm our commitment to that strength. We must redouble our commitment to defeat the vile worldview of white supremacy. It is a moral imperative that ALL decent people speak out against this violence towards our Latino families.
Today, communities across the country plan to hold vigils to remember and celebrate the lives lost and recommit to confronting the contemptible worldview behind the violence committed. Whether you work with an organization, church, business, or just want to express your individual support with family and neighbors, now is the time to speak out. Join us!
