It is with heavy hearts that we reach out to express our sorrow after another shooting and as another environmental disaster threatens families and communities. We grieve with the families and communities in Texas and those impacted by Hurricane Dorian. We grieve with and for our country. We also stand with the courageous protesters in Hong Kong. 
 
There is much unrest in our communities and throughout our world. From gun violence and immigration to climate crises and political unrest, our families and communities, both here and abroad, are hurting. 
 
We challenge you, as a part of AFTA, to act and work toward change. 
 
What are you doing in your community? How can we support you in these efforts? How might we come together to demand change?
