JOHN JAY COLLEGE OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE–Deep chestnut paint streaked across the canvas of thebanner. Thick lines swept up and down across the middle of the banner to create the likeness of mountain peaks. A half-circle of burning orange rose behind the horizon line of the mountain tops like the rising sun. 

“We Stand With EL PASO” 

With a heartwarming poster signing to show support for the people of El Paso, Texas, John Jay’s  Department of Latin American & Latinx Studies (LLS) began its “El Paso Project” initiative. The wide banner stood proud in the middle of the atrium as students bustled around it during Community Hour to write their own messages of support.
