In Response to Recent Gun Violence Tragedies in America
The Ackerman Institute for the Family is heartbroken over the mass shootings that took place in El Paso Texas, Dayton Ohio, and Gilroy California over the past several days. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and all those impacted by these senseless acts of bigotry. We condemn in the strongest terms white supremacist ideology, xenophobia, and gun violence.
Committed to social justice, we stand in solidarity with the Latinx community, and with immigrant communities at the Institute and the world over. As therapists, we are ready to offer care and support to those in grief and distress over this tragedy.
