As the world stands aghast over the latest mass shooting in the United States in which at least 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh were killed, LGBT groups were among those to condemn the atrocity. Janson Wu, executive director of the New England-based GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders, said his organization is “saddened and horrified by the shooting today at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.” “Our hearts and our thoughts go out to the families and friends of those who lost loved ones, those who were hurt by this violence and to all those in our Jewish communities who are reeling from this news,” Wu said. “We denounce hate in all its forms, and condemn the anti-Semitism that motived this incident.” Wu added “our collective responsibility” is “to do the work of mending our world” in the wake the latest mass shooting, calling for measures aimed at ending gun violence.
