Statement by the Massachusetts Psychological Association in Response to the New Zealand Attacks

 
The Massachusetts Psychological Association (MPA) would like to express its heartfelt condolences and strongest condemnation of the recent heinous mosque attacks that occurred in New Zealand, killing or injuring over fifty Muslims who were peacefully worshipping. This attack is evidence of the continued and growing prejudice and hate toward a select group.
MPA supports and conducts activities that promote an understanding and peaceful co-existence among different religions and cultures. Similarly, MPA reaffirms its commitment to being an organization that embraces the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and will not tolerate prejudice and violence.
This tragic event is a painful reminder of the horror that can manifest from hatred. It is our sincere commitment to continue to proactively support both the victims of such traumatic events as well as work toward preventing these types of tragedies in the future.
We stand united to offer our support to those who may have been touched by this violence and to renew our commitment to help create a peaceful and respectful society worldwide.
Sincerely,

Susan Wagner, M.A.
MPA Executive Director
