Statement From The Board Of ROADwomen
The murder of nine African-Americans on Wednesday night at historic Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, SC, is a hate crime affecting all Americans, regardless of race. President Obama said today that “Any death of this sort is a tragedy. Any shooting involving multiple victims is a tragedy. There is something particularly heartbreaking about a death happening in a place in which we seek solace and we seek peace, in a place of worship.” Such expressions of racism and hate, the violent use of readily available guns, and the barbaric disregard for the sanctity of all life, cannot be tolerated.
Our hearts go out to all who are grieving, in Charleston and elsewhere. Let us resolve to bring justice to this tragic event, to replace hate with respect across all our differences, and as Dr. King said, to “work passionately and unrelentingly for the realization of the American Dream.”
Please join us in doubling our efforts to fight discrimination, hate and intolerance wherever we find it.
