Rise Above Hate - Voto Latino Foundation


Rise Above Hate

On August 3, 2019 the El Paso, Texas, U.S./Mexico border and broader Latinx community was forever impacted. A mass shooting resulted in the murder of 23 individuals, the injury of dozens, and the stripping away of a peace embodied by one of America’s safest cities. The massacre was the largest slaughter of Latinxs by gunfire in a domestic hate-based incident in modern history.

One year after El Paso, we come together in solidarity: to mourn as a nation; to fight against the evil that is racism and white nationalism; to build bridges with our migrant family and honor our immigrant heritage; to acknowledge the intersectionality between race, criminal justice reform, gun violence prevention and voting; and lastly, to celebrate the communities that hatred has tried to silence.

We join the El Paso community to remember those lost to violence and hate. In their memory we show our #LoveForElPaso, fighting for a brighter future. Luchamos juntos por un futuro mejor. Register to vote and make your voice heard.

Donate today to support the CEA Survivors en Acción Scholarship Fund, created by Community En Acción and the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. Your contribution will directly support the children who lost parents and family members due to the August 3rd, 2019 El Paso tragedy.

The CEA Survivors en Acción Scholarship Fund was built to demonstrate respect for El Paso, its people and its resilience. The fund intentionally focuses on providing aid for the minors of victims who lost their lives, with special emphasis on children who lost both parents by this senseless tragedy. Donate today to create a direct impact on their lives.
