We are horrified and deeply saddened by the violent shooting attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her staff, and community members this past weekend in Tucson, Arizona. The Latin America Working Group’s thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of those who were tragically killed and gravely injured.

We hope that this horrific event serves as a reminder for us all to re-double our efforts to build communities that are safe and peaceful for all, to promote respectful debate and to vigorously condemn violence in all its forms.
