Statement on NZ Shootings


Collegiate Churches of New York categorically condemns the horrific shootings at Friday prayer services at two mosques in New Zealand today, which have left at least 49 people dead.

Hate based on religion, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation has no place in our world, our nation or our city.

We mourn for and support the people of New Zealand and Muslim people around the world in their time of grief, as the toxic mix of hate and gun violence that has plagued the United States has now ravaged yet another corner of the world.
