Shannon Wolfson, former KXAN News anchor, will serve as emcee for the event. Attendees will also have a chance to learn about volunteer opportunities from local nonprofits so they can continue spreading kindness after the rally ends.
Hate has no place here in Central Texas. We are stronger together!
