ETT Statement on Orlando Shootings

ETT Stands in Solidarity with the LGBTQI Community and Against Islamophobia

The horrific shootings in Orlando are deeply shocking. This was a clear attack on the LGBTQI community.

As a Union, we must now come together and show love, solidarity, and support for the LGBTQI community within our membership, in our schools, in this city, and around the world.

Furthermore, fear does not justify Islamophobia. We cannot allow the events in Orlando to fan the flames of religious intolerance against our Muslim sisters and brothers.

The complicated intersection of race, gender, sexual orientation, and identity means we must be mindful of our shared solidarity in seeking justice for all.

John Smith
ETT President
