Uvalde Mass Shooting

Yesterday, heartbreaking news broke that another mass shooting had taken place, this time at Robb Elementary School, in a predominantly Latino community in Uvalde Texas. The shooting which resulted in the death of 19 children and two adults is the 27th school shooting this year alone. 

This happened just 10 days after a racially motivated shooting occurred at a Tops supermarket in Buffalo, N.Y., where the lives of 10 people majority of them black, were taken by a teenage gunman.

Both of the shootings have left people in shock and wondering: What can we do to help?

So, L.A. TACO put together a shortlist of resources and donation links that will help both Uvalde Texas and  Buffalo, N.Y. victims, and survivors.
