On Tuesday May 24, 2022, an 18-year-old man entered Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, and shot and murdered 19 children, as well as two teachers. The Uvalde community is over 80% Latino and has a population of nearly 25,000 people. The ripple effects of this mass shooting have been felt across this small Mexican-American community, and across the country.
