BFP Buffalo, NY Shootings Statement
Brooklyn For Peace stands in solidarity with the people of Buffalo, NY, in particular the African-American community as well as people of African descent, following the deadly racist terrorist shootings at a Tops supermarket. We urge our elected leaders to stand firmly against the growing surge of white supremacist violence and call for immediate concrete action to address the epidemic of gun violence. We call for denunciations of so-called “great replacement theory” by our elected leaders and all those with public influence.
