The officers and members of American Federation of Teachers Local 1904, representing the faculty, professional staff, specialists and librarians at Montclair State University, offer our sincere condolences to the communities of the First Baptist Church and the African American community nationwide on the senseless murder of two African Americans in these hateful acts of racism. We also express our solidarity with your congregation and the entire African American community of Kentucky in the struggle against racism in all its forms.
Likewise, we offer sincere condolences to Tree of Life Synagogue on the senseless execution of your family members, friends, and fellow congregants in these hateful acts of antisemitism—and we further express our solidarity with your congregation and the entire Jewish community in standing up against antisemitism.
To our Members: Please utilize AFT's Addressing Racism and Stereotyping and Anti-Semitism and Addressing Hate "Share My Lesson" materials as tools in talking about these acts of violence with students, members of the university community, and members of your family.
