We offer our deepest condolences to friends and family of those killed and injured in the mosque attacks of Christchurch, New Zealand.

We wish to offer support to the local Muslim community and collectively re-affirm our commitment to building a broadly inclusive community.

On November 14, 2015, our community experienced first-hand the effects of hatred put into action, when the Masjid Al-Salaam Mosque was set ablaze. The fear and pain that the Muslim community experienced was met with an outpouring of care and comfort by supporters, locally and globally.

In the face of the Christchurch attacks, we urge all communities to rally together in this troubling time to face fear with strength and unity.
