ADC Statement on Orlando Shooting

ADC Statement on Orlando Shooting

Washington, DC | www.adc.org | June 12, 2016 - The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) sends its condolences to the families of the victims who were lost in the tragic mass shooting that took place in Orlando. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them during these trying times. Violence of this magnitude belongs to no religious, racial or ethnic group. ADC has always stood, and will continue to stand, against discrimination and hate crimes against all communities, including the LGBTQ community. We have worked regularly with the LGBTQ community, as they have been on the forefront of helping combat Islamophobia and Anti-Arab sentiment.

Tolerance and acceptance must be shown to all individuals, regardless of their race, sex, religion, or sexual orientation. We will continue working with all communities, including the LGBTQ community, to combat the hate and discrimination that impacts us all.
