An Open Letter from DCPA concerning the Tragedy in New Zealand
Members of the District of Columbia Psychological Association would like to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families and victims of the shooting massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand. As a body of ethical psychologists who stand for social justice, we strongly condemn this and other violent, hate-filled acts towards Muslims. Islamophobia is an ideal rooted in prejudice, hatred and racism. Acts of violence towards groups of people because of their religious affiliation is a crime against humanity that we strongly condemn as an Association.
