My Statement on the New Zealand Attack

I join people of goodwill everywhere who are in mourning in the wake of the horrific attack in New Zealand. We send our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of those targeted and to all members of the Muslim community around the world and here in Maryland, who have been deeply shaken by this unconscionable act of terror. In the face of a rising tide of hate, bigotry and violent far-right extremism that seeks to divide us, we must stand united in solidarity with each other.
