Statement on Robb Elementary School Shooting in Texas
GLSEN Phoenix is deeply saddened by the news of the shooting which took the lives of fourteen students and one teacher at Rob Elementary School in Texas today.
School should be a safe place where young people can flourish. School should never be a place where students and educators feel unsafe and scared.
We extend our sincere sympathies and support for the victims and their families, as well as all the students and educators who will forever be changed by this tragic event. GLSEN Phoenix will continue our work to ensure that each student in every school community in Arizona is valued and respected, and for all school environments to be safe, affirming and inclusive.
