On behalf of the Anne Braden Institute, I write to express a deep sense of shared grief and sorrow to those killed or injured over the weekend in El Paso and Dayton, to all directly affected by the shootings, and to our entire society, which has been so badly damaged by the violence and injustices that infect the very air we breathe.
