Starting May 27th, these Friday evening Zoom sessions are in remembrance of the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas
The Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS) is hosting short virtual prayer sessions every Friday through mid-October, in remembrance of those affected by the May 24, 2022 mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. The prayer sessions take place from 7:30 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. Eastern Time. Hosted by nondenominational spiritual teacher Aaron Rodriguez, the sessions are offered in Spanish and in English. Pre-registration is not required. Go to https://bit.ly/virtual-prayer to join.
“We are dedicated to supporting our education communities, and others affected by this senseless tragedy,” said ALAS Executive Director Dr. Maria Armstrong. “We committed to hosting 21 nights of prayer the Friday after the tragedy. These weekly sessions provide an opportunity for anyone who wants to attend to come together to help support healing for a wounded nation. We invite you to join us as we pray and meditate for our country and everyone affected by this tragic event.”
In addition to hosting the prayer service, ALAS, in response to the tragedy, is joining together with several other organizations, including Latinos for Education, the National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE), the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL), Education Reform Now, and UnidosUS to convene in Washington D.C. on July 22, 2022 to discuss options, and to make the changes and reforms needed by our elected and appointed officials to hopefully prevent another tragedy like this. Organizations that want to be a part of this convening can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
