It’s easy to wake up after a weekend like this and be unsure of what to do or how to act in the wake of such senseless violence. When I felt a little useless this weekend, I looked to our @BetoForNH team and saw how they #RefuseToDoNothing about hate and gun violence. A thread:
Many of our organizers come from Texas – some right from El Paso & the surrounding communities. When the news broke, they went to each other. They helped each other reach out to friends & loved ones who live or work near the Cielo Vista Mall. They checked in on our team in HQ.
Then, on their day off, the team went to the Latino American Festival in Nashua to share their love and their pride and their gratitude with immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees right here in New Hampshire. They just #RefuseToDoNothing.
In the face of so much rampant hate, they spread love. There was singing. There was dancing. We found hope in their joy and their relentless spirit. #RefuseToDoNothing
This week, our team is going to follow their example. Today at 1pm in Concord, activists & legislators will band together to urge @ChrisSununu to sign #HB109, #HB514, & #HB564. We will be there, and #RefuseToDoNothing.

In El Paso and Dayton, people lined up for hours to donate blood. Inspired by their example, @BetoForNH organizers and staff have signed up to donate blood right here in NH this week. If you #RefuseToDoNothing, you can sign up through the @RedCross here: redcrossblood.org/give.html/find…
Tomorrow we'll #RefuseToDoNothing by writing cards & sending care packages to the families of the victims of #ElPaso & #Dayton tragedies.

Take a moment to help us send❤️to these communities during their time of great need. Let them know we're with them.
We'll be reaching out to our friends in communities across New Hampshire, visiting immigrant-owned businesses to send our love and gratitude, and thinking of any possible way to take action in the face of all this hate. Proud of our team every single day. They #RefuseToDoNothing.
If you know of other ways we can pitch in or stand up, please let me know here or at Mike.Ollen@BetoOrourke.com. Because in a democracy of, by, and for the people, coming together in this moment is on all of us. Love you, New Hampshire. We’ll see you out there. #RefuseToDoNothing
