Statement on School Shooting in Uvalde, Texas

Chiefs for Change Board Chair Pedro Martinez today issued the following statement on behalf of the membership. 

“We are devastated and heartbroken to learn of today’s shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. It is an unspeakable horror. Our chiefs across the country share the pain of all who have lost those so dear to them. Having been superintendent in San Antonio, I know Uvalde and how the strong bonds of that community will come together to comfort and help families who are hurting.

As Chiefs for Change, we will continue to support efforts to prevent gun violence. School should always be a safe and welcoming place for every child.”
