We Stand In Solidarity with Buffalo
Our hearts are heavy as we process the incomprehensible act of anti-Black terrorism that shattered our Buffalo community’s sense of security and peace last Saturday night: ten people were killed, three others injured; eleven of the victims were Black. Our EforAll Buffalo team. including its entrepreneurs and volunteers, lost friends, neighbors, and family members. The grief, sadness, and anger are overwhelming.
EforAll stands in solidarity with the Buffalo community to condemn these acts of racially motivated terrorism, and we are committed to being a part of the conversation and change needed in all our communities and in our country.
