ICYMI: Coalition of Civil Rights Leaders Condemn Violent Attack on Israel
Organizers of 60th Anniversary of March on Washington Stand in Solidarity Against Hatred and War
New York, NY –– The nation’s leading Civil Rights organizations issued the following statement on the deadly terrorist attack against Israel over the weekend. The organizations stood in solidarity with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), one of the main organizers of the 60th Anniversary March on Washington this summer, which condemned the violent attacks.
The following statement can be attributed to Rev. Al Sharpton, Founder and President of the National Action Network (NAN); Martin Luther King, III, Chairman, and Arndrea Waters King, President of the Drum Major Institute (DMI); Marc Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League (NUL); Derrick Johnson, President and CEO of the NAACP; Melanie Campbell, President and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP) and Convener of the Black Women’s Roundtable; Shavon Arline-Bradley, President and CEO of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW); and Janet Murguía, President and CEO of UnidosUS:
“Today we are again witnessing the horrifying effects of violence upon innocent civilians in the Middle East. We condemn this terrorist attack on Israel in which civilians have been targeted, killed, and kidnapped. The long thread of Middle East history reaffirms that the region remains an unsettled boiling point.
We again reaffirm our commitments to one another and the certainty that throughout the world, our safety and futures are intertwined. We hold innocent civilians' families and our partners in our hearts, sharing prayers for their safety. We call on all our partners and colleagues to join us in solidarity because hatred and war must end.”
