The AAPILC Convenes a Vigil in Response to the Mass Shooting in Monterey Park, CA

SACRAMENTO – The California Asian American and Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus (AAPILC) joins the country in grieving with the families of the victims of the Monterey Park mass shooting incident last night.

During a time of celebration of the annual Lunar New Year when families gather to welcome the new year, our community once again faces another tragic incident of gun violence that continues to escalate during these times.

In response to this tragedy, the AAPILC will host a vigil on the west steps of the State Capitol tomorrow, Monday, Jan. 23, 2023 at 2:30 PM. This informal gathering will serve as a safe space for our community and our allies to come together in solidarity.

The AAPILC is committed to ending gun violence and remains dedicated to fight for equality, inclusion and justice.
