Vermont Slauson Economic Development Corporation sends our deepest condolences to the victims of the horrific shooting incidents in Buffalo, New York, and Laguna Woods, California. We grieve for the families and the communities and pray for all those who lost their loved ones. Racially motivated hate crimes and extremism impact all of us, and we condemn violence of all kinds. All people deserve to live in safe communities and as such, we must stand against racism and call it out.
