To the Community of WNY,

The Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA) is deeply saddened by the horrific and racially motivated violent attack that recently occurred in our community.

We denounce the evil that targeted our African American neighborhood. It destroyed lives and families. As Christian medical professionals, we denounce racism in all its forms—personal, organizational, and societal, both explicit and implicit.

Our love, prayers, and hearts are with those affected by this tragedy. We hope and believe that with time for grieving, extending love, and walking in unity, the healing will come.

May the Lord Jesus Christ bring life and life abundantly to all our communities in WNY.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” and to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-40).
