(Goose Creek, SC ) – State Representative JA Moore (D-Berkeley) will travel to Buffalo, New York on Wednesday to show solidarity with the community following a deadly shooting carried out by a white supremacist earlier this month.
“I was confronted by the evil of white supremacy when it took my sister’s life at Emanuel AME church in 2015,” Moore said. “I’m going to Buffalo to show support for the community and meet with local leaders. Days after the South Carolina General Assembly failed to pass a hate crime bill, we saw one of the most shocking displays of hatred in years. This legislation cannot wait. South Carolina must send a message that hate is not welcome in our state.”
During the trip, Moore will meet with Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, visit the site of the shooting, drop off food at Feed More WNY’s donation site and speak to the congregation of Grace United Church.
