Dear SEIU members and former members,
We all are aware of the horrific deaths of 14 people in San Bernadino, California. Many others were injured. I know we all are concerned about this senseless violence but there is more to this tragedy.
Ten of the fourteen people who were murdered are SEIU members. Yes—is that not a double tragedy for us? I think so….
I am bringing this to your attention because WE ARE UNION. This means we take care of each other. The members killed were young—-have families and did not plan to have funerals or not be able to provide for their children.
WE NEED TO HELP OUT— Help Families, Help kids that lost a parent! You can send money and small amounts are important too—
