We stand united with our movement, to be able to support women.
Our hearts and wishes for support stand with the families of the Monterey Park, CA victims in the mass shooting that took place at a dance hall over the weekend.
The predominantly Asian community has been affected by this tragedy and names of those that died in the aftermath are slowly being released to the public as they are identified.
The gunman died of self-inflected gunshot wounds and it seems that he may have been targeting his ex-wife in this incident amongst the dancers. The case is not being categorized as a domestic violence dispute.
I believe as CLUW members we should keep mindful of how precious and fragile life can be and I wanted to express how grateful I am for you as a CLUW sibling.
Please take a moment to reflect on the loved ones in your life and let them know how much you care for them today, in remembrance of those individuals who have many challenging days ahead of them in the wake of yet another mass shooting.
In solidarity with our sister organization, the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), we send out our message of support. For more information on this shooting can be found here.
