Valentine’s Day should have been a day to celebrate love, instead, it was a day that the United States of America was once more struck by a tragedy: 19-year-old, Nikolas Cruz opened fire on the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people and injuring at least 14 others. This is the 18th school shootings in the 45 days since the start of the year.
Unsurprisingly, the reactions far and wide have been of hurt and outrage. Many are criticizing Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio for tweeting that it was a “day you pray never comes” when he has received $3,303,355 and an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association. The senator’s prayers are ineffective in ending gun violence, and these 11 Latinx celebs are stepping up and making sure that their voices — and their calls to action — are heard.
