Vigil for Vanessa Guillen
This Friday, July 24, from 5-6pm, all are welcome to join a conversation on healing and justice for Vanessa Guillen. Vanessa was murdered this year while she was a soldier at Ft. Hood, Texas. She had previously told her family that she had been sexually harassed and assaulted by her commanding sergeant.
Truth in Recruitment is saddened by the treatment and death of Vanessa Guillen and angry at how the chain of command at Ft. Hood mishandled her disappearance and the requests of her family for information. The Lak’ech club and Truth in Recruitment are sponsors of this event. Monisha Rios, TIR advisory board member and Army veteran, will be a speaker.
To join the event via zoom, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Truth in Recruitment Still a Resource for the Community
As we shelter in place to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Truth in Recruitment team and Steering Committee wish you good spirits and health. With school closures and other public gatherings on hold, our outreach to the community has had to change.
Amidst these challenges, we face a new urgency to provide resources for non-military paths to service and jobs. At an April Zoom presentation to Youth Making Change, some students voiced how they had considered military enlistment, but their minds changed after reading Truth in Recruitment’s literature at the 2020 Women’s March. Now more than ever, we need your support as we continue to provide balanced information to students and families.
