Mourning the Synagogue Shooting

Fighting Anit-Semitism

Sen. Hwang’s Statement on the Tree of Life Synagogue¬†Shooting:

“I am sickened by the senseless violence yesterday at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Sadly, anti-Semitism is a demon our society has not exorcised. It’s a problem I take very seriously, which is why I fought for enhanced hate-crime legislation and a law to mandate Holocaust education in Connecticut schools. Only light can defeat darkness, only knowledge can banish ignorance, and only love can defeat hate. It is my hope and prayer that the wounds of this tragedy are healed and our nation will come together in the spirit of tolerance and understanding.”
