TOGETHER WE REMEMBER.

TOGETHER WE HEAL.

The lives of El Pasoans were forever changed by the August 3rd, 2019 tragedy.

As the one-year mark approaches, El Paso United Family Resiliency Center (FRC), the County of El Paso and the City of El Paso aim to unite El Pasoans in order to honor those we lost and send love to those deeply impacted. As partners, we hope to promote community-wide healing and foster an appreciation for El Paso’s rich history and heritage. Together, we can light a path toward long-term resiliency.

We are El Paso strong and together we heal.

#LOVEFORELPASO
