Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with the victims and families of the recent NYC train shootings, the Buffalo, NY shooting in a supermarket, the Geneva Presbyterian Church shooting in Laguna Woods, CA, and yesterday’s attack on the elementary school in Uvalde, TX. These are unimaginable occurrences and are rocking us all at our collective core.
As an organization focused on the safety and well-being of children and the adults who care for them, our hearts are broken – which, we know, is not enough. We know that we can’t afford to lose one more precious life. The families and communities that we serve need real action to prevent future gun violence. We will continue to work to make our learning environments and communities safe spaces and places for all people – from our babies to our elders – to live, learn, grow, and thrive.
Thank you for all that you do to serve and protect NYC’s youngest children and their families and communities.
Lorenzo Newby, Board President Tara N. Gardner, Executive Director
