In these last three weeks, with three mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, Orange County, California, and Uvalde, Texas, we’ve seen, yet again, how deeply white supremacy and violence are embedded in the fabric of this nation. We are heartbroken for the victims and their families. We are angry that “thoughts and prayers” are offered, but action to prevent gun violence, which disproportionately affects people of color, is not. We are tired of witnessing weapons of war being used to kill people where they shop, worship, and learn.
We are clear that EiC’s commitment to dismantling white supremacy and working toward race equity in society is more important than ever. So, we hold our collective trauma and resolve to focus more deeply on the action and healing that will contribute to the safer, more equitable America we envision.
