WASHINGTON, D.C.–People’s Action released the following statement in response to the horrific mass murder in Buffalo, New York, perpetrated by a white nationalist. 

“We are horrified, heartbroken, and enraged at the news of the vicious attack on our neighbors and loved ones in Buffalo, New York. This racist attack is a pure example of evil. It’s also the predictable result of the relentless onslaught of white nationalist and antisemitic conspiracy theories spewed from the far right, increasingly distributed by major corporate news outlets like Fox News and the extremist politicians their billionaire allies have cultivated. 

“We stand in solidarity with our members at PUSH Buffalo and the people of Buffalo tonight. Racist acts like this only strengthen our resolve to build a bigger ‘we’–to create a true multiracial democracy and heal the wounds caused by those who want to divide us.” 

People’s Action builds the power of poor and working people in urban, rural, and suburban areas to win change through issue fights and elections. We are a national network of 38 state and local grassroots power-building organizations in 28 states–united in the work of building a bigger “we.” We operate the largest progressive rural organizing project in the country.
