WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 15, 2022) — Statement from AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler and AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer/Executive Vice President Fred Redmond on Saturday’s racially motivated killing of 10 and wounding of three people in Buffalo, New York:

“The entire labor movement is appalled by the killing of 10 people and wounding of three by a man with racist beliefs who targeted Black people. While there’s no way to make sense of yet another racially motivated, hate-inspired attack on innocent people because of the color of their skin, it’s clear these types of mass shootings are perpetrated by those radicalized online, and we must take action. Our deepest condolences are with the family, friends, UFCW members and an entire community who are once again dealing with unfathomable pain due to one person’s racist beliefs.”
