Uptown Unity Vigil in Memory of the Victims of the El Paso & Dayton Shootings


America is in mourning yet again today, after massacres over the weekend in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH. This is a moment to grieve for the senseless loss of life--but also a time to directly confront its causes.   

We are a nation awash in guns, with a rising threat of white supremacist terror, fueled by rhetoric emanating from the White House.

We need to come together to demand Congress act immediately on guns.  And we need to fight back against the vile rhetoric of the president and his allies.

Join leaders from Northern Manhattan tonight for a unity vigil call to action:
