ESU Statement on the Tragedy in Pittsburgh

At this time of great sadness in the wake of the hate killings in Pittsburgh, the English-Speaking Union joins the nation in mourning. We stand with our partner HIAS, targeted during this tragedy for their role in resettling refugees. We support all of our partners who are committed to the American ideal of welcoming those in need, including refugees and asylum seekers. As we approach the one hundredth anniversary of our organization dedicated to global understanding, our mission is now more important than ever.
