In Response to the Shooting in Buffalo

BY ISN STAFF | May 17, 2022

In response to the shooting in Buffalo, New York on Saturday, May 14, 2022, we offer resources (NOTE: this list is not exhaustive) on racism, gun violence, and Catholic teaching on these issues.

As a network of individuals and institutions committed to justice and peace, we join the entire country in praying for the victims, their families, and those responsible, particularly in light of the continued epidemic of racism and gun violence in the U.S.— and for hope that we can collectively work toward a more safe, peaceful, equitable world.

“We unequivocally state that racism is a life issue. Accordingly, we will not cease to speak forcefully against and work toward ending racism. Racism directly places brother and sister against each other, violating the dignity inherent in each person.”
Open Wide Our Hearts, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
