NCDP Chair Statement on Orlando Mass Shooting

“The recent mass shooting in Orlando by a deranged individual is a tragedy. It underscores the need for change – the need for meaningful gun law reform, fully funded mental health care programs and a continued, robust response to terrorism at home and abroad. Most importantly, this terrible event shows us how important it is that we turn away from hateful, divisive rhetoric and embrace acceptance and inclusion of our fellow humans.” – NCDP Chair Patsy Keever
