Over the weekend, yet again we bore witness to the racist violence of our country. This horrific hate crime that resulted in the death of ten people is another painful reminder of just how much work is still needed to achieve racial justice in our country.
The actions we saw have brought new images of racism and injustice that Black communities continue to face. My thoughts are with the victims and their grieving families, as well as with our staff, Fellows, Alums, supporters, and host organizations in the Buffalo area.
As an organization committed to fulfilling our nation’s promise of equal justice for all, we have a strong obligation to stand up against racist violence. Black communities deserve better, they deserve justice. As always, I’m grateful to all our Fellows for fighting to enact meaningful change.
