The statement released by our Executive Director, Yomika Bennett, on yesterday’s horrific school shooting in Uvalde, Texas:
I am devastated to again be sharing a statement on another horrific act of senseless violence. Not even two weeks have passed since the Topps grocery store shooting in Buffalo. Tragedies once unimaginable are now commonplace in this country. We stand alongside all of those who are furious, overwhelmed, sickened, and devastated — hoping that together we can take action and call for real change in this country.
