Uvalde, Texas

The LULAC family is shocked and saddened to hear of the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX. Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and everyone present at the school, in addition to the surrounding community. As leaders in our communities, and as parents and educators we may be faced with a number of questions about how to cope with tragedy.

LULAC has compiled a number of resources as we are faced with questions and difficult conversations with children across the country regarding violence. We must approach these conversations with compassion, patience and understanding. Knowing how to talk with your child about violence will play an important role in easing fear and anxieties about their personal safety in these tenuous times as well as helping them to manage rising concerns.

Below you will find a number of resources that cover conversation starters, mental health resources and grief counseling for children from elementary to high school ages.
