19 children, 2 teachers – killed in yet another episode of gun violence that has become all too common. This endless tide of racial hate and gun violence continues to take the lives of innocent Americans across the nation. The shootings targeting communities of color in Buffalo, Dallas, and now Uvalde, Texas must stop. This week’s mass shooting at a Texas elementary school – following the Buffalo mass shooting from two weeks ago resulting in deaths of 10 predominantly older victims – is a harsh reminder that our country has failed to protect the most vulnerable among us. We offer our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims of the Robb Elementary School shooting. We demand that our elected officials at all levels of government work together to take immediate action to protect Americans in their daily lives.
