History of Luz De Vida Project
LUZ DE VIDA: A Compilation to Benefit the Victims of the Tucson Tragedy that shook the Tucson community – began in the days after the Jan. 8, 2011 shooting that took the lives of six people and injured 19 others, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
Luz de Vida – Spanish for Light of Life – is an expression of community, love, healing, grace, and hope, a positive response from Tucson musicians and national artists. The original Tucson Together Fund ceased in 2013 and since then, funds have been donated to Homicide Survivors, Inc., a local nonprofit who’s mission is to help meet the crisis and long-term needs of families of murder victims through support, advocacy, and assistance.
