M1 Raising Funds Following California Shooting
On Wednesday night, a gunman identified as a 28-year-old former Marine entered a crowded country and western dance hall in Thousand Oaks, California and opened fire, killing 12 people and injuring many others. This is the deadliest shooting in Southern California since 14 people were killed in 2015’s San Bernardino terrorist attack. Last night’s senseless massacre is also reminiscent of the Las Vegas country music festival shooting that took the lives of 58 people just over a year ago.
Not even two weeks ago, we were reeling from the shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue. This is a truly troubling time for our nation, and we need you — now more than ever — to join us in standing up against hate and restoring the human spirit. For the second time in the past two weeks, we invite you to channel our collective sorrow into action.
At this moment, we are raising funds to support those injured in the shooting, as well as the families of the 12 innocent people so brutally ripped from this world. This includes Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus, who was among the first officers through the door at the scene of the shooting, and who was shot several times as he attempted to subdue the gunman.
We invite you to join us in standing up against hate and helping to restore the human spirit by supporting those affected by this tragedy. Please click here to donate. We thank you for your unwavering support.
