We are all feeling a range of emotions after the brutal, hateful crimes that occurred on May 26, 2017 on the MAX Light Rail. Caldera is deeply concerned and saddened that young people were terrorized and that two people died seeking to defend them. We are also inspired and grateful that one of our own community members intervened to uphold justice and respect and, while seriously injured, survived. Caldera stands with and by all of the victims, their families, and the community. This incident is calling us all to hold space, reflect, respond and mobilize in a variety of ways.
With his permission, we share this video from Rocker.
On behalf of Caldera, our Executive Director and Board Chair have signed on as supporters to this community statement from APANO.
