MADISON, WI – Wisconsin State Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) launched her “Words Matter” pledge today and released the following statement:

“In the wake of the devastating terrorist attacks in New Zealand, I join the world in mourning, alongside friends and family of those lost. I stand with our Brookfield Muslim Community and their call to all elected officials to consider how our words affect actions.

It is right that this would be a time of prayer. And it is right that this be a time of action. Today, I am leading a call to all elected officials, nationwide, to take a pledge. Let’s pledge that we will consider how our words affect the actions of people – how our words affect peace and violence.

My office has launched a pledge for everyone, especially elected officials and political figures, to consider that their “Words Matter.”

Now is the time to mourn. It is the time to pray, to offer your thoughts of care and concerns of others, and it is also the time to act. Do not sit by and wait. Act now – take the pledge.”
