WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Green Party of the United States expressed deep sympathy for the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando, with their loved ones, with the LGBTQIA+ community, and with the people of Orlando and Florida.

The Green Party condemns terrorism and abhors violence, especially the infliction of harm against civilians.

Greens urged authorities to investigate and bring anyone else associated with the incident to justice. Green Party leaders stressed that the crime must not be exploited either to blame Muslims or immigrants or to suggest that LGBTQIA+ people are less than innocent.
