A Statement on Violence in Uvalde, Texas

 

Uvalde mass shooting

Dear Friends of the Schubert Center,

The Schubert Center is committed to protecting and improving the well-being of all children.  Once again, we are heartbroken and angered by the use of senseless violence against children in Uvalde yesterday.  Our thoughts go out to the families of those lost, their community, and all of us who witnessed yet another tragedy against innocent lives.  We all know that thoughts and prayers are not enough; actions must be taken to reduce the likelihood of this type of violence plaguing our society.  We stand committed to working in partnership with our community and public leaders to provide safe spaces for learning for all children.

Sincerely,

 

Anastasia Dimitropoulos

Director, Schubert Center for Child Studies
