A moment of silence, a time for reflection

Washington, DC—NCLR (National Council of La Raza), the largest national Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, joined the rest of the nation today in remembrance of the victims of the shooting in Tucson, Arizona this past Saturday.

“The thoughts and prayers of the NCLR family are with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, U.S. District Federal Judge John Roll, and all of the other victims and their families, whose lives have been forever altered by this senseless attack,” said Janet Murguía, NCLR President and CEO.

“As the country comes to terms with this tragedy, we are presented with a time to reflect on the privilege of our democracy and the responsibility each of us has toward preserving it. As a civil rights organization, NCLR knows well the consequences of vitriol in our public dialogue and treatment of each other. Each of us has a role and a responsibility in upholding and engaging in constructive and civil discourse. Let’s renew our commitment to see that through,” concluded Murguía.
