- Vigils in Silicon Valley for San Bernardino
- SEIU members and community stand together for peace in Bakersfield
We extend our love and prayers to our families and friends in San Bernardino and are collecting donations for families of the victims.
The atrocity in San Bernardino County took the lives of county workers who were members of Service Employees International Union, Local 721. We here at SEIU Local 521 stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who were the target of – and witness to – the unspeakable carnage that has claimed 14 lives thus far.
SEIU 521 members have a deeply personal connection to the tragedy given that the gathering was a holiday party for county workers and the site was a regional center serving people with disabilities.
While many details regarding the tragedy on December 2 still remain uncertain, we now know that 10 of the 14 victims were SEIU 721 members. Our thoughts are with the families, communities, and workers who have lost their lives and endured this unspeakable violence.
