Statement from the American Citizens for Justice Board on Charleston

Our hearts go out to the family, friends, and loved ones of Depayne Middleton Doctor, Cynthia Hurd, Susie Jackson, Ethel Lance, Reverend Clementa Pinckney, Tywanza Sanders, Reverend Dr. Daniel Simmons Sr., Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, and Myra Thompson.
As we seek justice for this inexcusable act of hate and terror, we must fight the urge to bury our heads at yet another tragedy inspired by hate. Instead, we must continue to advocate for justice and educate those who promote hate and fear.
American Citizens for Justice (ACJ) was founded in 1983 to seek justice for the killing of Vincent Chin, a killing fueled by hate and racism. ACJ is a nonprofit 501c3 organization serving the Asian Pacific American communities of Michigan and fighting for the civil rights of all Americans.
