Salt Lake City, UT (MARCH 15, 2019) - Mayor Jenny Wilson has issued the following statement in the wake of the shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand:

I am horrified to hear of the massacre at two mosques in New Zealand. Such an atrocity should be a call to action for all peace-loving people, this kind of hatred won’t be tolerated. Regardless of religion or region, this impacts us all.

I was honored today to share my condolences with the Muslim community at Utah Islamic Center in Sandy. Salt Lake County welcomes individuals from all corners of the world. We want to make sure we provide a safe environment for everyone to be able to practice the freedoms that we hold so dear.
