Earthjustice President Abigail Dillen released the following statement:

“This must end.

“The dual horrors of white nationalism and mass gun violence are terrorizing our nation — especially marginalized communities and communities of color. We stand in solidarity with our allies in the racial justice and immigrant rights movements, along with everyone appalled by these acts of hatred to demand bold, decisive action now. This is a threat not only to public safety, but to the very fabric of our nation. And any elected official who does not recognize what is at stake for this country and its people should stand aside and let others take their place.”
