Today, Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Steven Horsford (NV-04) and members of the Congressional Black Caucus issued the following statement regarding the deadly white supremacist shooting in Jacksonville, Florida: 

“Today, the Congressional Black Caucus is holding the entire Jacksonville community in our thoughts and we extend our sincerest condolences to the families and loved ones of the three Black Americans who lost their lives in yesterday's horrific attack. 

“On the same day that our nation reflected on the 60th Anniversary of the March on Washington – a day when Americans from all walks of life gathered in Washington to stand against hatred, bigotry and inequality – another American community was terrorized by white supremacist violence. Time and again, we have witnessed efforts to roll back the clock on progress and the real consequences that come from overt anti-Blackness in our country, but we will not be deterred. We will never stop fighting for justice and equality.  Hatred and white supremacist violence will not win in America.”
