"On the two-year anniversary of the horrific shooting that killed 11 Jewish worshippers as they prayed inside the Tree of Life synagogue, our hearts remain heavy with sadness as we continue to mourn those who lost their lives that day. Such senseless acts of violence have no place in this country, and thoughts and prayers are never enough. This year, New York launched the 'No Hate in Our State' campaign to combat a rising tide of Anti-Semitic hate-crimes and passed the Josef Neumann Hates Crimes Domestic Terrorism Act, a first-in-the-nation domestic terrorism law. We will never cease taking bold and aggressive actions to protect marginalized communities and to stop the viral spread of hate in this country."
