Puerto Rican pop singer Luis Fonsi remembers the mass shooting in El Paso and draws attention to the victims who need help on the first anniversary of the terrorist attack.
On August 3, 2019, a gunman killed 23 people and injured 23 others at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. The attack was a hate crime targeting Hispanic immigration. Then the gunman was arrested.
Latin singer shared a post on Instagram to mourn victims and dedicated himself to donate to the victims’ scholarship fund. He captioned:
“A year ago today, El Paso suffered a racist terrorist attack that left our community in shambles. This year, we turn our grief into action. Tap the link in bio (votolatino.org/elpaso), donate to the victims’ scholarship fund, and register to VOTE Voto Latino.”
The 42-year-old singer said they need leaders to fight against racism and keep society safe. He continued:
“Because now more than ever, we need leaders who will fight with us to abolish racism and keep our communities safe.”
