Is this America?

We grieve the many lives that have been lost or painfully transformed in recent weeks through extreme acts of violence.

AND we are appalled by the surge of divisive rhetoric that sows the seeds of more violence to come.

A dangerous tide of hatred, violence, and suspicion is rising in America — whether aimed at Arab and Muslim Americans, women and the places we seek health care, Black people, immigrants and refugees, or people just going about their daily lives. This tide is made more dangerous by easy access to guns.

When has hate ever led to progress? Is this really what we want America to be?

We Are Better Than This.
