The Time to Act is NOW

On Monday, August 19, community leaders gathered on the steps of the Washington county courthouse to stand in solidarity with the victims of the recent mass shooting sin El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.



Speakers included:


  • Washington County Chair Kathryn Harrington
  • Sheriff Pat Garrett
