In Response to the Armed Attack on the Jewish Community in Pittsburgh

October 28th, 2018

In response to the horrific shooting yesterday at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Steven Choi, Executive Director of the New York Immigration Coalition, issued the following statement:

“New York’s immigrant communities condemn the horrific terrorist attack at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. This violent attack that took the lives of 11 Americans is the direct consequence of vicious and sustained hate speech - often led by President Trump - that targets refugees, immigrants, minorities, and anyone considered as ‘other.'  We stand firmly today with the Jewish people and all Americans to condemn this anti-Semitism and hatred."
