Forward Latino offers its prayers, support and continued efforts to all those impacted by the mass shooting at Perry High School in Iowa and to the other victims of gun violence across the country.
Losing a loved one or surviving a shooting can create physical, emotional and psychological trauma. We are here to provide support. We can be reached at (833)LAT-INO1 and encourage all to review a comprehensive "Gun Violence Survivors Toolkit" created by our good friends at Giffords.
It is okay to ask for help. You do not need to go through this alone. God bless.
