A Sad Time
It is with profound sadness that we send out prayers and sympathy to the survivors and families of the fallen from the two mosque massacres in New Zealand. As an organization that promotes differences and inclusion, and truly believes that “Our Differences Are Our Strengths”, it is heart-wrenching knowing that hate to this magnitude continues to tear families, communities and the world apart. We denounce this horrendous act of hatred and terror and maintain that all communities of faith are free to worship in safety and without fear.
We dismiss the ideology of white supremacy, and any justification of it, that continues to subsist in our country and in any others. We must all confront this hatred and ensure that freedom for all to express their cultural, religious and ethnic identity remains. We must all stand together against hatred in all of its forms.
