The Public Policy Committee wishes to share WNDC’s message of condolence to the families and community of the victims of the Charleston, South Carolina, slayings

Members of the Woman’s National Democratic Club wish to express shock and horror over the killing of nine parishioners from the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, last Wednesday night. It is even more agonizing that this hate crime took place during Bible study in a house of worship. Their minister welcomed this stranger into their midst, and this man, driven by hatred, instead took the lives of nine innocents. We, as a Club, are broken-hearted by this act of mass violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the struggling community of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
