Statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair on the Mass Shooting in Orlando, Florida
"This was an act of terror; this was an act of hate, and this was an attack on all of us."
“I speak for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and myself when I say our hearts go out to the people of Orlando, the victims and their families, the responders, and the LGBT community.
“Yesterday, we saw the absolute worst of humanity, when the hatred of one individual turned into the largest mass shooting in American history. This was an act of terror; this was an act of hate, and this was an attack on all of us.
“We must stand together in the face of such hatred, and not let acts like these drive us apart. I and millions across this country stand with our friends and family in the LGBT community. Violence like this will not deter our resolve to ensure that regardless of who an individual loves or how they identify, they are treated with respect and receive equal protection under the law.”
