Achēv is devastated and deeply saddened by the horrific and senseless act of gun violence against the Black community in Buffalo earlier this week. We mourn the 10 victims who lost their lives due to this brutal, murderous attack. Our hearts ache for their families, friends and the Black community.
This act of terrorism is a reminder that hatred, racism and the threat of violence are a constant reality for Black communities across North America. We must continue to actively condemn anti-Black hate, racially-motivated hate crimes, violent extremism, white supremacy and terrorism. No one should live in fear of violence or lose their lives because of their race.
We stand in solidarity with the Black community and our hearts go out to those impacted by this horrific massacre.
