A message from Christians Together Waterloo Region

We grieve with those who have lost loved ones, been injured or traumatized by this act of intolerable violence. We lament the loss of personal safety this attack signals for Jews worldwide, and especially in Pittsburgh. As people of faith, we are resolved to stand for the dignity and equality of all people, to combat prejudice, stereotyping and hatred in all its forms, and to work toward a peaceable society marked by compassion and goodwill. We invite the churches and faith communities in our area to join us in this important and ongoing mission.
