Statement from President Pollack regarding the shooting in Buffalo

Like many of you I was horrified by yesterday's shooting by a white supremacist in Buffalo. It is tragic that shootings and acts of violence in our nation and around the world occur so often that issuing a statement in response to each would feel empty. But this shooting was practically in our backyard, and, as such, touches us all the more deeply. I write to express my profound sadness and anger, and my sympathy for all those affected by this shooting. We must find a way to end this evil, this hatred that destroys lives and communities.

Martha E. Pollack
