On March 21, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), a UTSA student organization, hosted a vigil for UTSA’s Muslim community to honor fallen victims of the March 15 massacre in New Zealand that claimed 50 lives, and injured 50 more. UTSA activists and community organizers gathered in front of the McKinney Humanities Building (MH) at noon. Students held flowers, and gathered in a circle as the president of SJP, Moureen Kaki, welcomed and thanked members of the community. Student members of other organizations came forward to ask those attending the vigil to join them in prayer and a moment of silence for the fallen victims.
