Milwaukee, WI –Senator Chris Larson released the following statement regarding the horrendous white supremacist terrorist attack in New Zealand:


“I’m devastated to hear of another white supremacist terrorist attack on a place of worship. Six years ago, our community Sikh temple was attacked and we lost six of our neighbors. Today, we stand in unison with the survivors in New Zealand and all Muslims who face threats of violence on a regular basis. We mourn with you and pledge to never tolerate hate.”
