Supporting our Community Following Hate-Bias Incidents
May 16, 2022
The murder of 10 people in a predominantly Black neighborhood of Buffalo, N.Y., was an act of domestic terrorism driven by racism and divisive rhetoric.
We extend our sincerest condolences to the African American families who lost their loved ones in Buffalo. Our care and support also go out to all of you who are impacted by this hate crime.
Please know that we are here for you.
