On the front lawn of our Motherhouse, we are publicly displaying our condemnation of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas where 19 children and two teachers were killed. This horrific act followed just days after a white supremacist walked into a grocery store with a gun in Buffalo, New York and murdered 10 people. We hold in our hearts all those killed by gun violence and who are victims of racism, as well as those victimized by hateful lies. May our collective grief and anger at this moment be transformed into meaningful action. Read Leadership Council Public statements in their entirety.
