A Joint Statement from Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo & Greater Buffalo Racial Equity Roundtable

The Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and the Greater Buffalo Racial Equity Roundtable condemn all hate crimes and rhetoric that fuels actions which undermine our commitment to inclusive and safe communities. On behalf of our Foundation and the Roundtable, representing more than 430 community partners, we want to first offer our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families of the abhorrent racially motivated hate crime that terrorized our community on Saturday. We are doubling down on our commitment to take action and work toward a just and racially equitable community.  Together, we can and will create change in the darkness of this heinous act.
