KSAT 12 has covered Uvalde for decades.

Our journalists are committed to the Uvalde community, sharing each of the victim’s stories and asking tough questions about how to prevent another tragedy.

On Tuesday, KSAT 12′s social media pages, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, will go silent for 21 minutes in honor of each of the 21 victims who were killed at Robb Elementary School.

We join our partner Texas Tribune, as well as other news outlets across the state, in remembering each of the victims.

If you are moved to join us, we welcome your participation. We’ve always reported on ways to help the victims of the mass shooting.
