Statement on Israel:

Today, we bear witness to the tragic consequences of violence against innocent civilians in the Middle East. We stand united in condemning the recent terrorist attack on Israel, which has resulted in the targeting, loss of lives, and kidnapping of innocent civilians. The turbulent history of the Middle East underscores the region’s enduring instability.

As the Akron Urban League, we reaffirm our commitment to each other and acknowledge that our safety and futures are interconnected on a global scale. Our hearts go out to the families affected by these distressing events, and we extend our heartfelt prayers for their well-being.

In this time of crisis, we urge all our partners and colleagues to unite with us in solidarity, recognizing that hatred and war have no place in our shared future. Let us work together to foster peace, understanding, and a brighter world for all.

Yours in the Movement,

Teresa R. LeGrair
